I'm playing with Kismac 0.12a on a powerbook with 10.3.4 installed.
Previously I've used two pc card cards without problems. All of a sudden
they don't work.
It recognizes my original Apple Airport card just fine, as well
as my Senao SL2511CD-PLUS, although I do not yet have the IOXperts
driver loaded under MacOS X 10.3.
However, I have run into my own little bit of strangeness with
KisMac 0.12a and MacOS X 10.3.4. I have been unable to log onto the
eurospot.com network here using the built-in Airport card, even
though KisMac was able to sniff multiple APs nearby, and iStumbler
and MacStumbler did the same. One weird thing was that KisMac
thought the APs were WPA-encrypted, whereas every thing else showed
them as being unencrypted. My wife's own laptop accessed the network
without encryption just fine, but I could not.
I went out and bought three new 802.11b/g WiFi cards (one LinkSys
WPC-54G, one Belkin F5D7010, and one D-Link DWL-G650 Atheros-based
model). I put in the LinkSys, and it logged me on right away. Of
course, KisMac can use it in active mode (as a Broadcom-based card),
but that doesn't help with the Airport problems, or why KisMac
thought the local APs were WPA-encrypted.
Both cards light up and something new happens in the top right hand menu
bar. A little icon in the shape of a pc card appears and when clicked on it
identifies both cards correctly. Is this part of Macos X 10.3.4 or Kismac as
I've never seen it before ? Is this preventing KisMac from detecting the
card ? Images attached.
That icon comes from the OS. Every card I've ever inserted gets
an icon like that.
You've got something else weird going on, perhaps due to driver issues.
