Install the hostap-utils and wireless-tools packages: This driver implements basic functionality needed to initialize and configure Prism2-based cards, to send and receive frames, and to gather statistics. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. When used with a user space daemon, the combination of the Host AP driver and hostapd prisj includes additional features.
Host AP driver was added into the main kernel tree in Linux v2.
The Host AP driver is part the Linux kernel since version 2. This is not possible for Prism 3 SSF devices. The specific option to enable can be found within the kernel’s configuration: Incorrect use of this utility can render your device linkx.
