I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 in my computer with an Atheros AR5007 wireless card.
I want to use Kismet but when I run it it starts displaying the message:
ERROR: Packet source 'wlan0' failed to set channel X: mac80211_setchannel()
It keeps displaying the same for every channel except channel 1. I have installed the compat-wireless-3.6.6-1 drivers and patched them with the following patch in order to use them with aircrack-ng.
I have installed the latest version of Kismet in the git repository and I even tried with the svn but it keeps displaying the same error. I also have set the kismet.conf file with the ncsource=wlan0 as it is the name of my wireless interface according to iwconfig :
I haven't found any answer since similar errors are supposed to be fixed with the latest Kismet release but this isn't my case. Any help will be appreciated.
lo no wireless extensions.
