Wireless RFMON mode, orinoco
As near as I can tell, I am running the following:
Fedora Core 3 (Kernel 2.6.10)
SMC 2632W (v1) wireless NIC
I seem to be running the orinoco drivers (determined via lsmod). I've also since discovered that you can run Prism2 cards using the orinoco drivers.
Neither the iwpriv nor the iwconfig commands will put the card into monitor mode.
Kismet starts up (seemingly error free), but does not capture any packets, and I'm still able to surf the web while Kismet is running. So, I'm guessing I'm not in monitor mode.
I seem to recall reading an article that stated the patched orinoco drivers were included in pcmcia-cs v3.1.3 and higher.
How do I determine the version of my orinoco drivers?
Do I still need to patch these in order to get into monitor mode?
[Trival fact: This card and Kismet worked fine when I was running SuSE 9.1, I have since leveled my machine to install FC3]
