Hi group,

Now that rt2570 module is installed I'd like to find out if there's a signal or if the Ralink device even works.

iwconfig finds:

Link Quality=0/100  Signal level:-120 dBm  Noise level:-93 dBm

This seems to say there is no signal. Right?

Here's kismet

heathen@kyzyl ~ $ kismet_client
FATAL:  Could not connect to localhost:2501.

Google doesn't help. Changing /etc/hosts line heathen localhost 

to the more generic localhost.localdomain localhost

doesn't work.
