Hi Dan,

Thanks for your advice on how to compile the hostapd v2.0. I did install
Package libnl3-devel.x86_64 0:3.2.21-1.fc18 will be installedI did add the line for CONFIG_LIBNL20=y in the .config to build the hostapd

$ which hostapd
/sbin/hostapd

I copied the following to /sbin   , after backing up the original two files.
   hostapd
   hostapd_cli

I have seen other users stating other issues using 'iwlwifi', but I cannot seem to get
invoking hostapd

Results:-
===========================

sudo hostapd ~/hostapd-naipsHotSpot.conf
Configuration file: /home/nojar/hostapd-naipsHotSpot.conf
Line 3: invalid/unknown driver 'iwlwifi'
1 errors found in configuration file '/home/nojar/hostapd-naipsHotSpot.conf'
