Problem starting HostAp
Wed Apr 21 14:56:14 PDT 2004
I am fairly new to HostAp so please don't mind if my problems are trivial.
I have downloaded the HostAp kernel rpm
But when I try to bring up my wireless interface, it cannot be brought
up. As soon as I revert to my old setting of connecting to the wirelss
router, it work perfectly fine. Could some body please tell me how do I
start the HostAp mode.
Also when I do "lspci" I get the following output.
Network controller: Harris Semiconductor Prism 2.5 Wavelan chipset (rev 01)
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc DWL-520 Wireless PCI Adapter
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=4K]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2
But I guess this entry is not found on the hostap_cs.conf file given on
the webpage. Can someone tell me how do I modify the file and put in an
entry for this wireless card.
PS - I tried installing the linux driver after downlaodig src files for
my old kernel but there were some inconsistencies and make woudl not
work fine. Hence I used the this HostAP kernel.
