I use the debian kernel 2.6.18-3 here on a Pismo with Airport card
and scanning worked out of the box (iwlist scanning).

Also kismet worked with the orinoco driver. It instantly found my
Airport station but also detected a steadily increasing number of
phantom networks with invalid data (floating hardware address and no
information about the used channel). I think this are non-WLAN devices
using the 2.4GHz band and wrongly detected by
airport/orinoco-driver/kismet. Has anyone seen a similar phenomenon?

  Best Regards
