Ubuntu 12.10: Configuring Kismet to work with Centrino Advanced-N 6200 wireless NIC

A good guide to configure Kismet can be found here:

the only problem being that my wireless NIC reports "iwlwifi" as the driver. Kismet won't start when configuring this value, It will die with this error:

Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
Suid priv-dropping disabled.  This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Unknown capture source type 'iwlwifi' in source 'iwlwifi,wlan0,addme'

the trick to make this work is to use "iwl4965" as the driver in the Kismet.conf file. Ex.:


after doing so, Kismet works. Have fun.
