Hi all, I have installed hostap and am trying to get hostapd started on a Ubuntu Gutsy laptop. Hostap seems to be running ok as I can get the card into master mode and can connect to it. I tried the Ubuntu package for hostapd but it gave "ioctl no such device". I also compiled it manually but still get the same error. I'm using a Senao
Prism2.5 card so didn't make changes to the .config file. The strange thing I have noticed is that hostap creates eth2 and wlan0_rename, and if I use either of these names in hostapd.conf, I get the "S10CGIFINDEX: no such device error". If I use wlan0, which doesn't appear to be a valid name - it isn't listed by iwconfig, I get a ioctl PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM no such device error.
