compared to bsd-airtools' dstumbler, kismac seems to have much better sensitivity.

i tried the same card with the same antenna against an ap some distance away ( 150-200 m ) and only picked this ap up after one minute with dstumbler - with kismac, however, it took less than five seconds. dstumbler is sort of a good stumbler, but it's old and i only use it for lack of a better stumbler. it very often can't pick up what kismac can. anyone who can offer an explanation for this?
