Hi all, I'm new. as you've probably assumed, I've joined because I've
encountered an issue using hostapd.
here's the problem: whenever I run hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf, I
get one of two errors:
Line 19: invalid/unknown driver 'mac80211'
Line 19: invalid/unknown driver 'nl80211'
depending on whether I put mac80211 or nl80211 in my config file.
I've gotten the rest of the config to "work" with madwifi as the driver,
however, the end result is highly unstable and a midgit farting in japan
may cause me to lose connection and see stuck beacons among various
other interesting behaviors.
While I would love to see madwifi support working, I'm in more urgent
need of a working wireless network, and so I hope to get nl80211 or
mac80211 working shortly.
