I am switching from hostap.ko based solution to madwifi/hostapd and
I am seeing a strange behaviour with both of them.
After boot the ath0 device doesn't come up. The behaviour is as
ifconfig ath0 up
hostapd started # does not work
# ifconfig again...
ifconfig ath0 up # syslog: ath0: creating bss 00:0f:b5:63:c5:64
# it works
Other tests showed that hostapd is needed at the the time ath0
first comes up. Another ifconfig ath0 up after hostapd was started
works, even if hostapd is stopped again.
Is this a known issue?
Thx in advance. /holger
