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://mcbridematt.dhs.org/blog/2010/11 ... 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.
