okay here goes…if it gets messed up we lose nothing just reflash (LOL).
/etc/init.d/hostapd stop sudo perl -i.orig -p -e 's/driver=nl80211/driver=rtl871xdrv/' /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf cd /usr/sbin sudo rm -f hostapd sudo wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1663660/hostapd/hostapd sudo chown root:root hostapd sudo chmod 755 hostapd sudo service networking restart sudo service hostapd restart iw wlan0 info
hopefully it says that you are AP mode

I really really appreciate how difficult this must be if you’re not seeing this stuff in front of you noop
As you only have me to facilitate this to you
but you have blown me away with your skills as this is all on the hoof so to say been passed on by me..
Sorry, just has to let you know how I appreciate this11. Januar 2016 at 0:08 #17711
after work tomorrow try this alternate hostapd, it for the EDIMAX
sudo /etc/init.d/hostapd stop sudo perl -i.orig -p -e 's/driver=nl80211/driver=rtl871xdrv/' /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf cd /usr/sbin sudo rm -f hostapd sudo wget http://www.daveconroy.com/wp3/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/hostapd.zip sudo unzip hostapd.zip sudo chown root:root hostapd sudo chmod 755 hostapd sudo service networking restart sudo service hostapd restart sudo apt-get install iw sudo iw wlan0 info11.

Sorry for not picking this up last night, I thought you’d finished
Anyhowo, I am at work and noticed this on a forum, could be worth noting
„“Using the Edimax wifi adapter on the RPi has a known issue of going to sleep. You need to add module options in /etc/modules.d/ to prevent that. Google it for details.““
And as soon as I get in I’ll fire up the pi and run the above and let you know, you have to admit its all very weird

No problem… I hoped you wouldn’t bother last night.
So, after you get a chance to try that. I had another thought … you EDIMAX dongle „should“ simply work. Maybe your download image is somehow corrupt. It wouldn’t hurt to try re-downloading the image and simply trying it.11. Januar 2016 at 20:06 #17752
Sorry for the break in transmission 🙂
Ok I have done that and the last line was or is
Nl80211 not found….
There could be good reason, I may have got the „l“ mixed up with the „1“
To be honest visually I honestly can’t see a difference
So maybe (really sorry noop) if you could let me know
The perl, is that in pearL is a letter and and in n180211 are all numbers,
Also I did my image ( well all of them)with win 32 image maker11. Januar 2016 at 21:38 #17754
Hi noop, sorry got carried away listening to the sad news about David Bowie, what a great loss for everyone
Very sad, and he only released his new album last Friday
Ok, I’ve done all you asked, and I rebooted before I started again, and still got the same answer as last time
nl80211 not found
And it couldn’t see it last night, maybe I ought to burn another image and with another image maker and see what happens
As that is the only thing that’s been in common with all this, from October last year I’ve been stuck, and never tried another image maker
