Ubuntu 8.10 claims WPA2 network key incorrect after using of kismet

Hello experts,

an hour ago i inserted in my ubuntu 8.10 machine a Dlink DWL-G510 wlan card. After booting up, the card started working as expected and also used the right key for my wlan from the previous card.
But after i used kismet to measure the quality of the signal, the connection stopped working. Also after several reboots and reentering the correct wpa2-key it doesnt work.
Do you know wheter kismet changes the internal config of the wlan card? Or do you know how i can reset all parameters?

as for resetting - did you try 'iwpriv'?
Issue 'iwprif [interface]' and see if 'reset' is available. If yes, issue
'iwpriv [interface] reset'
and see if it helps.
It doesn't change the card so either
card is now not working (unrelated to kismet)
setup on pc is wrong.  Check all settings.  Maybe test on another card if possible.

Hi guys,

unfortunately the whole pc is broken now. Bad mobo or power supply i guess.
I will check with another system but i guess my problem is not longer existing :-)

Thanks anyway.
The two answers may be useful to someone so my suggestion would be to close the question as 'self fixed' or something like that.
