The troubleshooting part on the page states that you need the proper version of kismac. Not only are you running a VERY old build :-p but you are not running the proper branch of kismac that supports the ralink devices. I'm sorry for the confusion. I will clarify this better on the page when I get a chance. At the moment kismac does not offer any public binaries of the ralink branch but you can compile it yourself with reasonable ease! Follow the directions at https:// trac.kismac.de/wiki/BuildingFromSource and instead of checking out the trunk ( https://svn.binaervarianz.de/kismac/trunk ) you need to checkout the ralink branch ( https://svn.binaervarianz.de/kismac/ branches/usb-drivers ). Please email back if you need more help or stop by the irc channel where we can help you in in realtime. ( irc:// irc.freenode.net/kismac )

P.S. Do not install any drivers for the device. If you do it will most likely break compatibility in kismac.

I am using a PowerBook G4

Mac OS X 10.4.8

KisMAC 0.21a (0.2a [$Revision: 138$])

D-Link DWL-G122 Ver b1  with driver update ver. 10.4 Tiger

I disabled my Airport Wireless card and installed the D-Link USB adapter, with the intention of using it with KisMac but have been unsuccessful so far. According to the Kismac wiki the USB device should automatically work with out installing any drivers, well I've tried this with no luck, and found the device driver off the Ralink website and now I can at least access the internet with it. The error I get when running Kismac is that my device is not properly connected... Do I not have the right version of Kismac? According to the Kismac "OUR HARDWARE" wiki a lot of individuals out there have figured out how to configure there systems to use the DWL-G122. Can anyone point me in the right direction? thanks!
