How to get associated station number in HOST AP mode ?
Mon Sep 8 20:56:09 PDT 2003
Hi,I have two extended problems:
1. When station leave or change channel manually ,
HOST AP can't react it immediately.
And it will have residual MAC address in /proc/net/hostap/wlan0
How to solve it ?
Because it will be misunderstanding as an associated station in run time.
2. If I setup two HOST AP with the same channel ( SSID also in the same)
I can't find each other in /proc/net/hostap/wlan0
I check the source code that if it is AP , it will create the MAC
with AP00:60:XX:XX: ....
And if I set both AP in different channel , then nothing happened.
How to make AP can show each other's MAC address in
Thanks for your kindly reply :)

Do you mean Association ID? It is available from
/proc/net/hostap/wlan#/<STA mac addr> (aid=NUM).

That is also available from the same procfs file, flags line includes PS
flag when the STA is in power saving mode.
