Hi Team,


Whenever I am using ath9k, I am using "driver=nl80211" in hostapd.conf file,
but I am not sure what is the difference between madwifi driver
interface(driver_madwifi.c) and atheros driver interface(driver_atheros.c)?

When should I use "driver=madwifi" and when should I use "driver=atheros"?
