I need to turn my laptop into an access point, and create a non add-hoc kinda wifi network that my android can connect to. After doing my reading I found from here that there are many drivers currently available but not all support the creation of access-point like wifi network. Please help me choosing the correct driver for creating my wifi network, It would be really great if some one can help me find all the driver that supports all the following modes

Supported interface modes:
         * IBSS
         * managed
         * AP
         * AP/VLAN
         * monitor
         * mesh point

I use a HP DV-6 7040tx and my lspci outputs

root@VikkyHacks:~# lspci | grep Broadcom
0a:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
