I have just got hostap_pci running on a Netgear MA311 Wireless PCI card,
which seems to be based on a Prism 2 chipset. Its not listed much on
the web so I was pretty please to get it up. I have had it running in
master mode without a problem. However, my question is, where can I
find out detailed information on the hostap modes (e.g. Master, Slave,
Repeater etc)? I am especially interested in Repeater Mode. Exactly
what is this? How does it relate to ad-hoc and infrastructure modes? Can
I use it to extend the range of wireless lans without backbone cabling?
Any help/info/pointers gratefully received.
