Any 8.x firmware version has been blacklisted from the .15 Orinoco drivers. You need to use a version 6.X or 7.X. 7.52 would probably be my first choice.

Ah, luck is not on my side. for some reason, the 8.xx and 6.xx drivers work when edited, but the 7.xx ones do not. since i couldn't use 8.xx, i had to go down to 6.xx. however, monitor mode now works! thanks king!

ok ok... so question... now when i run "iwconfig ethx mode monitor", the command is sucessful, however, "iwpriv ethx" does not list "monitor". Kismet, however, runs, but dies after 30 seconds. I'm thinking there's still a problem w/ my firmware or drivers. Any suggestions you can give me? Each step gets me a little closer...

Are you putting the card into monitor mode before starting Kismet? I usually just let kismet put the card into monitor mode. Usually kismet says something when it quits. Any idea what that was?

Also, type 'dmesg' before kismet starts and after it crashes, see if it says anything.

Ill give it a try with the latest 2.6.17 tomorrow with the 6.x firmware. It's honestly been a while since I have touched a FC5 system. If I don't have the same issue, I don't really know how to help.

I tried it on another computer running 2.6.17 and FC5. I had compiled 0.13 drivers before using kernel 2.6.17, and installed them. Using those same modules, Kismet does not lock up. It appears that the FC5 kernel cannot compile the dragorn drivers. Looks like this is the prob, not the firmware.

this is the error on the make of orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17 drivers:

make -C /usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2157_FC5-i686 M=/root/orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17 modules

With FC5, you don't have to compile any drivers. The ones that came with the kernel. As much as I don't like the .15 Orinoco drivers that come with the kernel, the still do work somewhat reliably.

Trying to install your .13e drivers may be causing the issues you are having. The installer/modules are very outdated.

I have had very poor luck getting the 0.13 drivers working with FC5, and the time when I did get it to work, I had already screwed around with the system so much (Installing the stock kernel without any RH patches and then recompiling it for my particular system) that the system wasn't entirely stable for anything but Kismet. Even when I tried it again, I couldn't make it work for my self, let alone write instructions for the average user.

I just tried mine with the 6.16 firmware, and it ran just fine, detecting the 5 WAPs in the neighborhood from my room.

I did not try anything but to compile them. I'm still running the drivers that came w/ FC5. Not sure why it's crashing on me. Thanks for your help.

FC6 has been (un)officially released and installed, so the new Kismet howto has begun (There is a Kismet RPM, so this should be the easy part :) Now onto that perpetually pesky Orinoco issue.
