Kismet is an 802.11 wireless network sniffer that is able to identify and separate and different wireless networks within range. Kismet works with any 802.11b wireless card which is capable of reporting raw packets (rfmon support), e.g. any prism2 based card (Linksys, D-Link, Rangelan, etc), Cisco Aironet cards, and Orinoco based cards. Kismet also supports the WSP100 802.11b remote sensor by Network Chemistry and is able to monitor 802.11a networks with cards which use the ar5k chipset.
