pemontto Posted September 2, 2016 Share Posted September 2, 2016 I'm looking to do some site scanning on both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz range. I thought the Tetra would be ideal for this using one radio for 2.4Ghz and the other for 5Ghz. I've seen a number of guides for using Kismet with the NANO and MarkV but nothing specifically for the Tetra. I've installed kismet-server and kismet-client using opkg, a release from 2013 it appears. I have a few issues The interface doesn't show any networks, but it does show statistics on the channels and data packets captured. Kismet doesn't honour the channellist or channels I set for each interface in the config file, it always uses the autodetected list from the chipset. I have to go into the kistmet-client interface and manually set the channels. The autodetected list is also wrong and tries to set the card to channels it can't support based on iwlist. Quote channellist=name Use an alternate channel list instead of the autodetected list of channels supported by this interface. The channellist must be defined. Despite it showing nothing the pcap it outputs contains all the information expected, I can see and filter between 2Ghz and 5Ghz networks etc. Unfortunately this isn't very useful for onsite scanning where live feedback on networks is crucial. Any help or insight greatly appreciated. The reason airodump-ng and the recon module aren't fit for this purpose is because I parse the pcap and need the PPI header information to extract the band and signal strength. Airodump-ng on the pineapple doesn't export PPI headers or even basic radiotap headers. I've also tried running them in parallel to use the output of airodump, but it doesn't seem to deal with 5Ghz networks very well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
