Alex:

I don’t know how adventurous you are but there is a pre-compiled hostapd binary available that supports the RTL8188CUS chipset.
It’s up to you if you want to try it out.

Here is how to try it out… it looks complicated but what it essentially does is: download a new hostapd file, move the current one aside, and creates a link to the new hostapd program.

After going through the Max2Play Access point setup, then replace the hostapd binary…

cd /tmp
wget http://www.daveconroy.com/wp3/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/hostapd.zip
unzip hostapd.zip 
sudo mv /usr/sbin/hostapd /usr/sbin/hostapd.bak
sudo mv hostapd /usr/sbin/hostapd.edimax 
sudo ln -sf /usr/sbin/hostapd.edimax /usr/sbin/hostapd 
sudo chown root.root /usr/sbin/hostapd 
sudo chmod 755 /usr/sbin/hostapd

Then reboot, and see if this version of hostapd runs for your dongle.
