Working it did get I.
For you Ubuntu users here is what I did.
sudo apt-get install kismet
then I edit the conf file.
sudo gedit /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
In the Conf file you have this
# Sources are defined as:
# Source types and required drivers are listed in the README under the
# CAPTURE SOURCES section.
# The initial channel is optional, if hopping is not enabled it can be used
# to set the channel the interface listens on.
# YOU MUST CHANGE THIS TO BE THE SOURCE YOU WANT TO USE
source=ipw2915,eth1,Kismet <-- HERE!!
My sources are defined from the list on Kismet's website.
The first is my wireless chipset. I have the 2915 Intel set. The second, eth1 is the connection. The third is just the name identifying the list.
Then just start Kismet.
