Hi all,

I am running hostapd v2.7-devel. I have two radios, 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz.

There are two hostapd instances running.

How can I have only one hostapd instance to control both radios?

Reason being, I want to have band steering that's built into hostap.
This requires to have only one hostapd instance, correct?
