It is sounding more and more like the key to getting KisMAC to work in passive mode with airport extreme is to ensure that nothing else tries to use the Airport Extreme card for anything, *ever*. Even after a normal reboot, my iBook G4 won't scan in passive mode with the Airport Extreme, presumably because things that load automatically on startup (such as network time synchronization) start using it. The only way I can make passive airport extreme scanning work is to do a safe mode reboot (i.e. hold "shift" all the way from the startup chime until login is complete). Then it works like a charm...

Your mileage may vary from what I am about to say.

If you have your airport card turned off and start kismac it has worked for
me. I have tested build r82 on Friday and r83 today on my powerbook that has
been up for over 4 days. This was done with my normal gambit of programs
running using my Ethernet connection.


P.S. This has survived multiple starts and stops of kismac.

 How do I install the airport extreme driver?
 When I try to run the kismac program with passive airport extrem it
 makes the airport disappear for other applications until I restart.
 But it also doesn't work for kismac saying that the driver is missing.
 any clues?
