Last time I checked the Macbook Passive driver doesn't capture data packets, just broadcast.

Install Ethereal... there is a darwinport of it.

Enable dumping in kismac, be sure you remember the path you told
kismac to dump to.

Fire up kismac, and scan till you see some data packets (real data,
not just beacon frames).

Open Ethereal and File -> Open the dump file Kismac just created.

The mac addresses of any network cards sending to or from the AP will be listed.

If you need some help understanding network frames, Ethereal, MAC
addresses, etc check Ethereals site (www.ethereal.org), they have some
good info on it.

No, the network is not WEP/WPA protected, just MAC address filtered. Is
there a way to find out the MAC address for the clintes connected even
though it is not an encrypted network?
