Summary0007168: Multiple MT76x2u card failing in Kismet
DescriptionWhen running Kismet with more than 2 MT76x2u cards, only the highest wlanX will channelhop. The other (lower) wlanX will be locked to a channel.
This has been tested on both a laptop (amd64) and a RPi4 (arm64).
Laptop running Kernel 5.10.0-kali6-amd64 5.10.26-1kali2
Rpi running Kernel 5.10.23-Re4son-v8l+
Kismet latest git (commit 4673a9c40effa057667551a0868b0c6c57a406f7)
This has also been tested with and without a powered USB-hub. No difference
When testing with airodump-ng, both nics hops on channels.
If kismet is given a channellist the nics are hopping on those channels. No other channels available in GUI.
Steps To ReproduceWhen booted:
Connect NICs
In /etc/kismet/kismet_site.conf define:
source=wlan0
source=wlan1
source=wlanX
Start kismet (sudo kismet)

With channellist:
source=wlan0:channels="1,6,11,36,48"
source=wlan1
source=wlanX

Given the channel-list the card hops. This is not a bug and is expected behaviour.
Was trying to give example where it kind of works.
