Linux WiFi ath5k driver AP-mode
Posted on 2009-04-12
Hi! I did a lot of research trying to find a suitable WLAN card that would work with Linux, and I eventually found a D-Link I thought would work.
The card works fine in standard mode using the ath5k driver, but was trying to get it to function as an access point using hostapd. I just read that the ath5k not yet supports ap-mode. I've also tried removing ath5k and using the older MadWifi driver, but that didn't work either (I installed the Ubuntu linux-restricted-modules package and rebooted, but the WLAN card isn't being detected).
Is there any way to do this? It's an AR5001X+ chip.
