I am borrowing a Netgear WG511T (Atheros based) card from a friend to test my network security but I cannot get it to work with KisMAC. 0.08a. When I choose the driver and click start scanning it fails.

The following message appears in the console:

Feb 11 16:29:18 localhost kernel: Found supported card: Atheros 5212
Feb 11 16:29:18 localhost kernel: Unable to attach to HAL: status 4522001


" KisMAC has been able to load the driver (Atheros based card, passive mode). Reasons for this failure could be:

1. You selecteted the wrong driver.
2. You did not insert your PCMCIA card (only if you selected such a driver).
3. Your kernel extensions screwed up. In this case simply reboot."

Aside from the grammar (should be has not been able or could not load..), what could be wrong?
