I was searching Google and various Maemo sites for Kismet and I found
that the 2008 version of Kismet .deb works fine for the most part on
my N810 yet after a while Kismet just times out, it says "Saving Data
Files" with but it stops receiving any packets but elapsed time keeps

I have to restart Kismet, sometimes it lasts over 1 hour 15 minutes
still working but sometimes it only lasts 25 minutes.

I tried various techniques including connecting to a WiFi access point
first and even turning off Power Saving for that connection then
starting Kismet.

I even tried iwconfig wlan0 power off to attempt to turn Power Saving
off before starting Kismet.

All the posts and results I found on the Internet have resulted in old
posts from early 2007 to mid 2008, that often talks strictly about the
N770 and N800 and often talk about OS 2007.
