This problem is both a bit strange and spans multiple classifications, so I'll just drop it here and hope for the best. Currently I've got the OpenWRT (http://openwrt.org
) firmware running on my Linksys WRT54GS. The main point of this setup is to have a Kimst drone running on the WRT to do packet capture and other various amusing things.
I've got the Kismet drone working on the WRT and the Kismet server running on my desktop. However, whenever I start the drone, I get the following error message:
'eth1: Invalid argument'
It repeats about every 5 seconds. But the drone still seems to be working and I can see things on the Kismet server on the other side. An error that repeats like that makes me a little nervous though.
Next, I began using Driftnet on the FIFO dump from Kismet (anyone have any more information about that FIFO pipe BTW? Unrelated, but any links details what kind of headers it has, etc. would be great). It seems that Driftnet is missing the vast majority of the photos I'm browsing. I don't know if this is because Kismet is set to channel hop or what, but when I've got a page full of images (Google Image search results) and I keep refreshing it, Driftnet will catch maybe one picture each 5-10 times I refresh. Perhaps the Kismet drone isn't sending across that many packets and the error messages are a sign of that? I assumed that Driftnet would be able to grab way more photos than that, but maybe it's a Kismet setting instead. Not really sure...
Anyway, lots of weird/tangential things here, but I've seen so really smart people around here, so someone might have some ideas. If this isn't clear (definite possibility) or needs more info, just ask and I'll update. Thanks in advance for any information,
