1  General Category / General Discussion / Dreamplug, SD8787, AP, AccessPoint on: November 25, 2013, 02:06:42 AM
Trying to revive this thorny subject... Here is what I tried:

- u-boot from u-boot_2013.10-2_armel.deb
- 3.12.1-version of the kernel from http://www.xilka.com/
- the latest version of the sd8787-firmware (md5sum: bda543cb5943eac34e16d12911f3ee99)
- the latest version of hostapd from git

But there is definitively something wrong, as I only get a "mlan0"-interface, and no "wlan0" or other.

If I use mlan0 in hostapd, I get the following error:

Configuration file: hostapd.conf
ieee80211 phy0: mlan0: changing to 3 not supported
ieee80211 phy0: mlan0: changing to 3 not supported
nl80211: Could not configure driver mode
nl80211 driver initialization failed.
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface mlan0 wasn't started

Any idea what I missed? It works fine in client-mode, but I'd prefer AP Wink
2  Linux Stuff / Kernel / Re: Dreamplug AP using mwifiex (SD8787) on: November 23, 2013, 01:54:43 PM

I'm trying to use my Dreamplug as AP. It's a 1001-model, with a SD8787. I downloaded the kernel 3.12.1 from 'xilka.com' and even got a new uInitrd going. I also downloaded the file sd8787_uapsta.bin and put it in /lib/firmware/mrvl.

I get the card to run in client mode, but I never see a uap0 device, only mlan0. What else must I do to be able to use the wifi as AP?
