I have a TP-LINK TL-WN321G 54Mbit
(Ralink chipset) USB WiFi adapter and want to make an access point out of my homeserver (running Debian). I've found a similar topic
where it was told that master mode is only supported in the latest rt2x00 drivers, so I have compiled the latest kernel (2.6.28-rc5) downloaded from git as described in your GIT Instructions
, but it seems it was for nothing. I still can't bring wlan0
into master mode (everything else, repeater, adhoc, managed, monitor works). There is also a device called wmaster0
, but I can't ifconfig/iwconfig it nor has it any wireless extension. I spent two days figuring this out without success. I think I tried all available drivers (Ralink official RT2501USB
, rt73-k2wrlz (enhanced rt73), Legacy RT73) both with different kernel versions such as 2.4.36, 188.8.131.52 and the latest one available, 2.6.28-rc5 (from git).
What should I do?
Is there any solution (I don't really need any other modes, only master) to get this working?
It's really important for me.
Thanks in advance
