thx a lot. Now it works. I had no clue what STA f/w means :)
But the problem all the same is. I changed the enh_sec to 3
but NetStumbler find the Accesspoint :( The AP is shown without an
SSID but it's in the NetStumbler list. I shut down the wlan,
changed the SSID for testing, and started it again but nothing chanced...
How can i hide the AP that it only "answer" when the client have the
right SSID. Is that possible?
