    I'm currently setting up kismet. I've tried kisMAC and it seems/is very unstable. It quits every 5 minutes.

    Anyhow, I'm setting up kismet and want to know how to setup the capture device. In the readme it lists airport extreme as a known chipset that does NOT work.

    Anybody had success getting kismet to work on a 2.4gh MacBook?

    Broadcom Airport cards won't work. Full stop.

    If you really want to use it, then buy a Wireless dongle.

    What's the best alternative software to use if one doesn't want to buy a new NIC?
