Jouni,

We are using the devicescape driver from wireless-dev git tree as
well, Is there any special instructions on building hostapd-0.5.8 to
use it? I have set the settings in the .config to use devicescape and
to point to my kernel's sources and it compiles fine.

However, it does not work. wpa_supplicant on another machine can't
communicate with it nor can any Windows XP hosts.

BTW, hostapd is running on Ubuntu 7.04 (using wireless-dev kernel
2.6.22.) The device driver is devicescape (RALink's rt2x00/rt73usb).
The wireless device is a Belkin Wireless G USB.


Any help at all would help.

Thanks,

Ed
