I don't know if any of these bits will help, much less if they'll
suffice to actually make things work, but for whatever it's worth,
Kismet (my favourite wireless auditing app) comes with a little
helper script to put a prism-based 802.11b interface into
promiscuous sniffing mode; excerting the Kismet-specific bits, the
essential commands it contains seem to be:

#echo "Disabling WEP"
#wlanctl-ng wlan0 dot11req_mibset mibattribute=dot11PrivacyInvoked=false

if test "$1" = ""; then
	echo "No channel number given.  Defaulting to channel 6"
	chan=6
else
	chan=$1
fi

device=$2

echo "Enabling monitor mode on interface $device channel $chan."

/sbin/ifconfig $device promisc up
/sbin/wlanctl-ng $device lnxreq_wlansniff channel=$chan enable=true

and yes, the WEP disable is #-ed out in the version of the script I
have.
