Most prism or orinoco based cards will work with kismet but both require
additional software or patches
to get them to go into monitor mode.
Get the orinoco patch file on the kismet web site to patch your orinoco
Use hostap to get the prism based cards to work.
I've used kismet with veritech, avaya and enterasys cards and they all work
without a problem.
Have also read that the latest orinoco drivers have monitor mode support
built, you change into it with a iwconfig
command, but I have had no luck with this.
