I'm very new to network analysis and Kismet, so I was very surprised when on the first try I started to collect around 100 networks/minute in monitor mode. I live in a city, but with a run of the mill laptop, I should only see what's in my immediate neighborhood. I had to abort collection after around 15 min, as the Application started to slow down, in the region of 1500 networks.

Does anyone have an explanation for what might be going on?
