Hello Manjunathan

The hostapd driver is not responsible for QOS in WLAN enviroment.
That's a kernel's work. U need to compile into kernel QOS support, and
after that, your host where u have WLAN interface used any driver
(hostapd, wlan-ng, ....) is ready to handle QOSed packets. If U wana
set up priorisation for some packets (in my case VoIP h323 softphone)
u can set it up via next command:

ipchains -A output -p udp -d 0.0.0.0/0 72 -t 0x01 0x10

where 0x10 means Minimum delay.

It should help u i hope.

Best regards,
 Slavoj                            mailto:hostapd at cybercity.sk
