Have been trying to set up kismet_drone (kismet-drone_2004.10.r1_mipsel.ipk) on WHR-G300N. Any ideas how to force ralink interface into monitor mode? WL is for broadcom, and wlanconfig for atheros, and "iwconfig IF mode monitor" aint working (Operation not supported).

root@DD-WRT:/tmp/kismet# ./kismet_drone -f kismet_drone.conf
Using alternate config file: kismet_drone.conf
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Disabling channel hopping.
Source 0 (drone): Enabling monitor mode for ralink source interface ra0 channel 0...

FATAL: pcap reported netlink type 1 (EN10MB) for ra0. This probably means you're not in RFMON mode or your drivers are reporting a bad value. Make sure you have the correct drivers and that entering monitor mode succeeded.

Did you see this part in the Kistmet documentation?

I'm not sure what/how the driver is configured in DD-WRT.
Would have to ask the developers (Brainslayer) or look through the source-code.


RT28xx (Linux)

There are 2 drivers for the RT28xx chipsets. The in-kernel driver
available as of Linux-2.6.31 works properly with Kismet. This is by
far the preferred driver to use. Be sure to enable the RT28xx driver
in the wireless drivers section, NOT the staging driver. The staging
driver is not mac80211 based and will not necessarily behave.

The out-of-kernel driver does not conform to mac80211 controls.
This driver also cannot be auto-detected (they don't provide a valid
identifier in /sys) so the driver type mus be manually specified with
'type=rt2870sta' on the source line.

This driver defaults to the name 'rausbX' which exposes a bug in some
versions of libpcap and may require the device be renamed (See
'Troubleshooting' section)
