Here’s how I got Kismet running on Ubuntu on my Asus W3V laptop.

  1. Open up a Terminal: Applications > Accessories > Terminal``
  2. sudo apt-get install kismet
  3. sudo gedit /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
  4. Change<br /> source=none,none,addme
    • If you don’t know your relevant network driver, view the Kismet Readme and scroll down to the section “12. Capture Sources”. My driver is ipw2200.
    • If you don’t know your interface name, use iwconfig to find your wireless interface (mine is eth1). [screenshot]
  5. Save the file
  6. sudo kismet [screenshot]

Any questions? Feel free to leave me a comment below 🙂
