That's interesting that you'd say that. Older kernel? Am I
interpreting that wrong or is hostapd kind of obsoleted?

Hmm, so that's the criterium is it, that the NIC driver
supports AP mode. Well at least that makes asking for
something in a kernel developers list easier then.

I just replied earlier to Brix that I misunderstood
about the card I ordered being a 2200, since it's a
2100. I guess that doesn't make a huge difference?

Thanks,
