Hi all, I have been reading the past threads but I could not find 
anything about my specific problem. If you know of a past thread about 
my same problem please let me know and I wont bug the list any longer. :)
I noticed that passive scanning works correctly (writing the results of 
the scan to file) only if hostAP is in Master mode. When hostap is in 
Managed mode the channels are changed but no results are written to file.

I am using hostap 0.1.3. and the commands I use are:
iwpriv wlan0 ap_scan 1
iwpriv wlan0 other_ap_policy 2 (and 3 as well).
Then I check the file: /proc/net/hostap/wlan0/ap

In Master mode I have the results, in Managed mode the file is empty.

Your help is very much appreciated.
Thank you,
