Setting up Kismat in Ubuntu 8.10

Getting up Kismet running on Ubuntu 8.10. ( HP Laptop)
  1. Open up a Terminal: Applications > Accessories > Terminal
  2. sudo apt-get install kismet
  3. sudo gedit /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
  4. Change

    • 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).
  5. Save the file
  6. sudo kismet
