    Can anyone help with setting up kismet?

    My System:
    WRT54GS 1.1 (HyperWRT 19/10/05).
    Windows XP x64.
    Putty version 0.58.

    Known so far (To help myself and others).

    1. Select & Save Telnetd in your firmware.
    In Administration, Management.

    2. Change wireless mode to Client & Save.
    In Wireless, Basic.

    3. Run Putty.
    Select Telnet & enter the Routers IP address then click Open.

    4. Type: cd /tmp
    Type: wget http://www.kismetwireless.net/code/kismet-2005-08-R1-wrt54.tar.gz
    Type: tar -zxvf kismet-2005-08-R1-wrt54.tar.gz
    You now have the latest files on the router.
    5. rm kismet-2005-08-R1-wrt54.tar.gz
    Deletes files not needed. I'm sure there is a more tidy way of
    doing this, but this will do for now.
    6. mv kismet-2005-08-R1-wrt54 kismet
    Renames the directory to kismet.
    7. Files go in to which directories??


    Not had time to really play around as I have users connected to it and wouldn't like the interupts, i'll have to buy another to play with.

    A few commands in Telnet.
    tar - Extract the files from a tar format archive
    cp - Copies a source-file to a target-file
    ls - Lists the files and subdirectories
    cd - Changes your current directory
    mv - Renames a file
    rm - Deltes a file
    mkdir - Makes a new directory
    rmdir - Removes the directory

    Helpfull sites.

    Any help or tips setting up Kismet would be fantastic.

    Not much info regarding Telnet or Kismet, and i'm new to this.

    I hope to make this first posting somewhere for beginners like me to look for info to get started.

    Many thanks.

    Update: This Page in the DD-WRT wiki looks very promising.

    I haven't gotten around to trying kismet on the WRT so I can't vouch for these but check this webpage out.

    Additionally I saved this post from the Sveasoft forum way back when. Not sure if there's anything useful in it but it's worth a look.

    You might also want to try searching the OpenWRT forums

    Make sure to make a followup post detailing how you got it working! :thumb:
