I have a Netgear WNA1100 usb wifi adapter. I have installed Atheros driver from Forum Details (btw name of the file is ath9k_htc-installer.1.0.1-maverick-fixed.deb).
I wish to make a setup like connectify(windows) on ubuntu, so that I can connect my phone wirelessly to my laptop via Netgear WNA1100 (behaving as AP) and eventually use internet via my wired lan.
I have installed the above mentioned driver, hostapd and hostap-utils. Following is my hostapd.conf file.
interface=wlan1 # The interface name of the card
driver=ath9k_htc # The card driver
ieee80211x=1 # Use 802.1X authentication
When i run
sudo hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
I get an error
invalid/unknown driver 'ath9k_htc # The card driver
I think the driver is installed fine, as i can see the blue led blinking on the netgear adapter, which was not blinking earlier.
- Can someone please guide me how to achieve this setup?
- I will appreciate an example hostapd.conf file with a simple wpa_psk security setup.
- Please be detailed and descriptive with commands. How to run and end it.
Following is output from lsmod, i have only pasted the entries which had ath and ath related info. Which driver shall i use.
