I used to set my Atheros wireless card as an Ap in Ubuntu 12.04 with hostapd package and success.

Now I need to set my Atheros wireless card as an Ap in Ubuntu 13.10 with hostapd package. With Code: sudo hostapd -B /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

I found that error:

Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

nl80211: Failed to set interface wlan0 into AP mode

nl80211 driver initialization failed.

Is that Ubuntu 13.10 linux doesn't support for the nl80211 driver, or could I use other way to resolve this problem?

Thanks for your suggestion!
