 Sounds like your wireless card is in use at the time.
 Try restarting, and launching KisMac first thing up, that might help.

 Passive mode is screwy when enabling / disbling. We should just

It completely takes over the card, and if you have only one card, then you are prevented from getting any kind of wireless connectivity with any other program.

There's a reason why it is supposed to be enabled/disabled on demand -- some people have iBooks and other computers that only have one wireless device internally and no option to add in cards.
