This has probably been asked many times, I apologise if so -- but I've
looked a lot and I can't find a definitive answer as to which USB card is
the best to use with hostapd.
Specifically, which one that works and supports more than 7 simultaneous
devices. I have three cards, one is rtl8187 which doesn't work at all, and
the others are ath_9k which work perfectly, minus the fact that you can't
have more than 7 simultaneous connections, which is firmware related.
I want to go and buy another one but I first want to ensure that it'll work
well with my old laptop, which has builtin wireless which doesn't work
It has to be USB because of the fact that it's a laptop, unless there's
some way to replace the builtin wireless card?
Thanks for any help anyone can give me.
