https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hello,I want to turn my computer here into a wireless hotspot. Herefore i'm doing a tutorial described here.The problem i have is when i want to run the hostapd-min.conf i receive these errors:Configuration file: /etc/hostapd-minimal.conf nl80211: Failed to set interface wlan1 into AP mode nl80211 driver initialization failed.So the problem is lies with the interface. If i look wether my wireless supports AP (iw list) then it is one of the options:Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * AP * AP/VLAN * WDS * monitor * mesh point * P2P-client * P2P-GOSo i&#0 (HowTos)
