hi you guys...

i installed debian etch's rt2x00 package and it switches on "master" mode quite nicely... i also managed to get hostapd cvs (snapshot from 25rd of march 2007 or so) compiled.
so i do the following

shiznix~/hostapd-0.6-2007-03-25/hostapd# ./hostapd -dd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
Configuration file /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
Opening raw packet socket for ifindex 21
BSS count 1, BSSID mask ffffffffffff (0 bits)
SIOCGIWRANGE WE(compiled)=20 WE(source)=14 enc_capa=0x0
RATE[0] rate=10 flags=0x152
RATE[1] rate=20 flags=0x156
RATE[2] rate=55 flags=0x154R
ATE[3] rate=110 flags=0x154
Could not set passive scanning Unknown error 4294967295
Flushing old station entriesDeauthenticate all stations

Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 00d041a6e68e and ssid 'test'
wlan0 Setup of interface done.
Wireless event cmd=0x8b04 len=12
Wireless event cmd=0x8b1a len=1

this sure does look quite nice. but i can't see the network when scanning for available wireless networks.... any ideas? what am i doing wrong?
thx u guys for answering.


Edit Apparently this stuff works pretty nicely, but I came to find out the reason why it didnt show me the SSID on my macbook i *can* connect to it, but the connection keeps going off and on within every 2 seconds. that does not happen on my neighbour's windows notbeook...

any ideas?

Please tell particular versions of the software used or repository revisions. I tried to bring hostapd up but never succeed.
