I have been trying all sorts of things to get TL WN321G (which uses rt73usb) to work as an AP.

I have got this link which says that it works -

http// ... USB%20wifi

The latest I tried was to use kernel 3.0.1 and the bleeding edge compat-wireless, which is dated 11-08-08. I "integrate" the compat-wireless into OpenWrt trunk development kit, but yet it did not work. The wifi can be started, the interface entered into AP mode, but I could not connect to it.

I have attached the hostapd.conf in this post. This is "kind of" generated by Openwrt based on /etc/config/wireless which is "auto-detected".

Need help to point me to the next best thing for me to try.

Got better success with rt73usb module parameter nohwcrypt. Looks like this is needed even for no encryption to work.
