https://bbs.archlinux.org – And yes this is not for the MacBook. I am using on dm6446 processor with custom hardware. I could get the AP to work previously with hostapd when i used driver=rtl871xdrvbut then I compiled with the netlink driver (for some reasons)driver=nl80211and now I get two interfaces instead of one (as was with the previous case) wlan1 and mon.wlan1 but no ssid is associated to any of these. I also checked if it was hidden network or something but nothing like that, the ssid just doent seem to be set up. When I start hostapd with the -dd switch in the logs I do see this:Using interface wlan1 with hwaddr (HowTos)
