Hey everyone.  I was curious if maybe someone could help me with my 
broadcom card.  I am trying to enable monitor mode to use with kismet, 
but whenever I try to start kismet I get an error saying that monitor 
mode could not be enabled.  Here is my card as in lspci:

05:00.0 "Network controller" "Broadcom Corporation" "BCM4312 802.11b/g" 
-r01 "Broadcom Corporation" "Device 04b5"

I was curious if there was some way I could force it into monitor mode.
