I own an Alfa AWUS036H network adapter using the rtl8187 driver on a
Debian box. I plan to use it with hostap, which apparently requires
master mode to be enabled in the driver.
The page http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl8187 states:
not working yet: AP/Master mode
What means *yet*? Is it planned to add master mode support in the
near future? Do you have other suggestions what I could do to get
the driver to work together with hostap?
Disclaimer: I am not an expert in those things. I set up the access
point some years ago, then the network adapter started to function
unreliably. I then replaced it with a different one (the
abovementioned 036H) and didn't manage to get my setup running
