    Hello  everybody.

    I was wondering - has anyone tried to use acx-mac80211 with hostapd? Is something like this supported, or planned?

    I tried to start hostapd with this driver and following hostapd.conf:

    interface=wlan1
    driver=nl80211
    ssid=test
    channel=5
    hw_mode=b
    

    on my D-Link 520+ card, but only got:

    Failed to create interface mon.wlan1.
    nl80211 driver initialization failed.
    wlan1: Unable to setup interface.
    

    So… am I doing something wrong, or is this functionality simply not available?

    Thanks in advance for the answers.

    Best regards.

    I just realized I was using ndiswrapper instead of acx-mac80211 driver - sorry for this, it would seems, I can't load acx-mac80211 driver for my card at all… but I will start another post for that.

    Best regards.

    I have fixed my card problem, and now it works with hostapd :)

    Thanks for this driver.

    Best regards
