Does the iwlwifi Wifi driver for intel cards support AP mode?

July 26Hits:8

Ok from my research so far, there is a driver that intel works on for its newer cards called iwlwifi. there's also iwlagn and I am unsure if they are the same? Anyway, do any of them support AP mode and the cfg80211 architecture?

It seems like the brcm80211 still does not support AP mode so i am looking at alternatives. Atheros is a good option so far :)!


Have you looked at something called hostapd? It is in the Ubuntu Software Centre with a link to the developer's website. There you will see this comment:

Note! Host AP driver was added into the main kernel tree in Linux v2.6.14. The version in the kernel tree should be used instead of this external hostap-driver package. The external releases are only for older kernel versions and all the future development will be in the main kernel tree.

I have also found this link
