Greetings to all of you!
First of all, I would like to apologize that I am probably another one asking questions solved thousands times before. You are likely to tell me that I should use your search button. BUT - your search button actually doesn't allow me to search - says i'm not allowed to at this time
I used Google to search the posts and used all the information I could find but still I am not successful.
I am trying to set my Edimax EW-7318USg into master mode.
Kernel rt2x00 git
Linux a02-0435c 2.6.27-rc6-wl #2 SMP Thu Oct 23 14:42:25 CEST 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
I downloaded and compiled hostap.git and configured it according to the ap-mode howto.
root@a02-0435c:~/src/hostap/hostapd# ./hostapd -dd hostapd.conf
Configuration file: hostapd.conf
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM]: Operation not supported
Could not enable hostapd mode for interface wlan0
hostap driver initialization failed.
wlan0: Unable to setup interface.
Flushing old station entries
Deauthenticate all stations
rmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory
There is no additional info in syslog nor in debug.
Dmesg after modprobe

Monitor mode works fine, Managed mode not tested yet, as I have no open AP near me. Scanning in Managed mode also works fine.
Thank you for any help!
