I am a newb in Linux. And I am trying to configure hostap in AP mode
using the LinkSys cards.
I have been successful in installed the hostap kernel modules and the
device driver coming in RPM which . 'lsmod' says that pcmcia is
attached to hostap_cs. But whenever I do a ifconfig wlan0/eth1 I get
wlan0:error fetching interface information: Device not found.
I edited the etc/modprobe.conf adding the following lines
alias wlan0 hostap_cs
alias eth1 hostap_cs
In the network device manager I have found Linksys cards in the Ethernet
Device category and also the device name being 'eth1'. But its not found as
a wireless device .
What can I do? The Readme is not helping me much for
installation.Please help me with your experience
