Hi there!
Anyone has an idea why it happens that hostap works good only if I ifconfig
eth0 down?
If i don't do it, the dhcp server gives the IP but then it's not even able
to ping. 
And if I do /etc/init.d/dhcp restart when eth0 is still up, I get the error
message
Starting DHCP server: dhcpd failed to start - check syslog for diagnostics

The tail syslog is this:
Dec  9 15:04:03 tonga kernel: wifi0: 00:09:5b:ba:16:13 assoc_cb - STA associated

Any hint for me?
Thanks a lot!
