Hi,<br> I am using kernel version 2.6.16 which has inbuilt hostap driver.Is it possible to install hostapd 0.4.9 with this kernel.I tried doing it and when I tried the following command.<br>"hostapd -B hostapd.conf
"<br>It gave hostap driver initialization failed.<br>but it created "wlanap" interface.What is this interface?<br>My prism card automatically loads into interface 'wifi0' which is created by the system.
<br>But if I activate the card in master,there is a problem in pinging the Access Point though I could see it.<br>Moreover the network bridge(Global Sun Technology wireless network bridge) was loaded on wifi0 when I booted the system but since I could not ping I changed the network bridge to eth1 and opened a new wireless connection with nickname wifi0 and device
eth1.Now I could ping the Access Point and could send traffic across it.Atleast the ping worked across the Access point.<br><br>Is this setup correct?Also please comment on the "wlanap" interface and whether hostapd
0.4.9 is compatible with version 2.6.16 kernel's hostap driver.<br><br clear="all"><br>-- <br>Regards<br>Archana Rajagopal
