MAC address filter using hostapd with madwifi

hi~



I would like to know how to use MAC address filter using hostapd with madwifi driver.

I can use iwpriv to set MAC filter policy, but I cannot use hostapd to achieve the same goal as iwpriv does. The sample `madwifi.conf` in the hostapd source directory does not contain the section of MAC-related settings. Dose it mean that hostapd does not support MAC filtering if madwifi driver is used? The following is my configuration file, and it seems that when both “wpa” and “ieee8021x” are all set to 0, the hostapd will not enable wireless LAN interface. Could anyone can provide me the right settings about MAC filtering.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!
