2007-03-08 The gps usb cable started going more and ...
The gps usb cable started going more and more flaky, which resulted in more networks found without location data.. which does not improve my score. Today I stopped twice on my way home to restart kismet so it synchronized with the gps again. Still, I scored 99 new networks today without gps locations, and 51 new networks with gps locations. I decided to modify an old usb cable together with an old keyboard extension cable to power the gps (power from the usb connector, data to serial) so I could revert to getting data in via the good old serial port. I considered soldering the keyboard cable to the mainboard but the service manual for this laptop makes this look like a very complicated thing to do.
