    I know this is an old topic... but have any avid Kismac users had trouble with scans since upgrading to Lion? My program freezes every time I start a scan. Anyone know of a fix? I hear tell there's one out there but I haven't been able to find it or figure out what it is.

    This didn't seem to work... Hold down 3 and 2 during boot right? Kismac still froze. What are you quoting?

    Did you find any solution to this? Or do you know of any alternative passive scanner for Mac?

    If you just need a scanner - iStumbler 99 works just fine.

    I will second that and yes KisMAC does not work on mine in Lion but iStumbler will give you the same info without the pretty graph.

    Agreed with Brian and Osxx. iStumbler for just a WiFi Sniffer is great. I have used it for years. Latest version works fine in Lion.

    Hi there, was just wondering if it allows you to crack a WPA2 network. THanks.

    No, It's just a basic WiFi Sniffer.

    Cracking other peoples WPA2 networks is not legal and a subject not allowed on the forums.
