How can I get HostAP running in rc8 or rc9??

Just want to use a Senao Prism based card with the HostAP drivers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Some good person (sorry, I can't remember the name) already created an ipk with a version compatible with wpa_supplicant (in case you need WPA encryption).

Search this forum to find the link... the package was out for RC8, but I'm using it with RC9 without problem.

Hope this helps,

Andrea

What card are you using with hostap & did it use hostap "by default", or did you have to do any "hacks" to get it to use hostap??

Thanks.

This is how I run hostap on my Z with RC8. I created a hostap.conf file in my /etc/pcmcia/ directory using the hermes.conf file as a template. I had to make the following adjustments to the file:

CODE
                                   
#device "orinoco_cs"
#  class "hermes"
#  module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs"
#  module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs" opts "pc_debug=3"

device "hostap_cs"  
class "hostap"  
module "hostap", "hostap", "hostap_cs"    


After that I located the entry for my card in my newly created hostap.conf file and changed it to use hostap_cs.

CODE
card "Ambicom WL1100C 11Mbs Card 802.11b"
 manfid 0xd601,0x0002
 bind "hostap_cs"


Restart your PCMCIA subsystem with /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart. Then re-seat your card and you should now have a wlan0 device that can accept the iwconfig wlan0 mode master command to act as an AP.

To go back just rename or delete the /etc/pcmcia/hostap.conf file and restart your PCMCIA subsystem again.

This doesn't work for me ;(
I made a hostap.conf & put the relevant info into it (as above post). I don't have an entry already for the card in hermes.conf or anywhere else, as far as I can see.
The Hostap module doesn't even load up at boot.
I can see crdmgr pick up the info, during boot up, but that's it. Why isn't Hostap even loading?
Any further ideas??

My card:

Senao NL2511CF Mercury

Cardctl ident:

product info: "WLAN", "11Mbps_PC-Card_3.0", "ISL37100P", "Eval-RevA"

manfid: 0x000b, 0x7100

function: 6 (network)


Thanks very much for *any* help anyone can offer.

On the subject of Hostap drivers
For more than a year several people have been struggling to get the "Connect Plus" WiFi card from SanDisk to work (it has wifi + 128 Mb memory combined into a single compact flash card), and just recently support was added to hostap 0.3.2 CVS
It would be great to have support in the next rc!

Some information about the support was given here:
