Hi all,
Is possible to scan the network for oter APs when card is in AP mode?

Here are my ifconfig and iwconfig outputs :

root at master:~/nasWifi# iwconfig

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11abgn  Mode:Master  Frequency:2.442 GHz  Tx-Power=20 dBm
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off

mon.wlan0  IEEE 802.11abgn  Mode:Monitor  Tx-Power=20 dBm
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off




However, if I try to scan :

root at master:~/nasWifi# iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Interface doesn't support scanning : Operation not supported


Best regards,
Drasko
