Hello,

I'm trying to configure the USB - ZyXEL Communications Corp. NWD2205
802.11n Wireless N Adapter [Realtek RTL8192CU]

Sofar I did followings, but don't see my WiFi AP in the air:

My hostapd.conf is:
[code]
interface=wlan0
driver=nl80211
bridge=br0
ssid=Cs5P3
hw_mode=g
channel=2
country_code=RS
wmm_enabled=0
wpa=1
wpa_passphrase=*************
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP
auth_algs=1
macaddr_acl=0
[/code]

I'm using an USB WiFi dongle ZyXEL NWD2205:

But, on my mobile phone I can't see this WiFi AP.
What could be the problem?

Any advices will be appreciated!
