  1. Hi, I did some more test using another wifi dongle. I manage to get the hostapd to work with a wifi dongle using a rt2800usb driver and disabled the ht_capap in hostapd.conf. Configuration file: nfx-hostapd.conf Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 00:25:86:e7:68:35 and ssid "CHEZLAUTRE" wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->ENABLED wlan0: AP-ENABLED # Works ! So this looks like a dudgy negociation between the nl80811 and undrelying drivers like xradio_wlan (the onboard wlan interface) or/and mt7601 driver. It's really weird
  2. Hi, I'm using an Orange PI ZERO HC2 + and usb (mt7601u) wifi dongle to create a hotspot. The configuration is as follow <HOTSPOT>WLAN0 [ Orange PI ZERO HC2+] WLAN1 <connected to my box> At startup when hostapd is launched to create the hotspot i get the following output . See below <HOSTAPD ERROR>. My hostapd.conf is below. Wlan0 use for xradio_wlan as physical driver Wlan1 use for mt7601 as physical drive I did some testing. I have the exact same config with a pi3. And have no problem. I tested the hostapd provided with the orange pi on the pi3, it works no problem. On the orange PI, If i do it the other way round : wlan1 to deal with hotspot, wlan0 to connect to my box. <HOTSPOT>WLAN1 [ Orange PIZERO ] WLAN0 <connected to my box> I get the same error. So its does not depend on the underneath driver ( wradio_wlan, or mt7601u). So it looks like something fishy with the driver nl80211 declared in the hostapd.conf. Any help would be appreciated. Note: i guess its easy to reproduce, use my hostapd.conf below: hostapd myhostapd.conf # HOSTAPD ERROR -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- hostapd -Kd myhostapd.conf random: getrandom() support available Configuration file: nfx-hostapd.conf nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:1 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:5 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:2 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:4 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:10 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:8 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:9 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:6 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:13 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:11 nl80211: Supported cipher 00-0f-ac:12 nl80211: Using driver-based off-channel TX nl80211: Driver-advertised extended capabilities (default) - hexdump(len=8): 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 40 nl80211: Driver-advertised extended capabilities mask (default) - hexdump(len=8): 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 40 nl80211: interface wlan0 in phy phy1 nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 3 (AP) nl80211: Failed to set interface 4 to mode 3: -95 (Operation not supported) nl80211: Try mode change after setting interface down nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 3 (AP) nl80211: Failed to set interface 4 to mode 3: -95 (Operation not supported) nl80211: Interface mode change to 3 from 0 failed nl80211: Could not configure driver mode nl80211: deinit ifname=wlan0 disabled_11b_rates=0 nl80211: Remove monitor interface: refcount=0 netlink: Operstate: ifindex=4 linkmode=0 (kernel-control), operstate=6 (IF_OPER_UP) nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 2 (STATION) nl80211 driver initialization failed. hostapd_interface_deinit_free(0x1eb0020) hostapd_interface_deinit_free: num_bss=1 conf->num_bss=1 hostapd_interface_deinit(0x1eb0020) wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED hostapd_bss_deinit: deinit bss wlan0 wlan0: AP-DISABLED hostapd_cleanup(hapd=0x1eb0d80 (wlan0)) wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started hostapd_interface_deinit_free: driver=(nil) drv_priv=(nil) -> hapd_deinit hostapd_interface_free(0x1eb0020) hostapd_interface_free: free hapd 0x1eb0d80 hostapd_cleanup_iface(0x1eb0020) hostapd_cleanup_iface_partial(0x1eb0020) hostapd_cleanup_iface: free iface=0x1eb0020 # --------myhostapd.conf interface=wlan0 driver=nl80211 #ht_capab= #driver=mt7601u #driver=mac80211 #driver=xradio_wlan ssid=CHEZLAUTRE hw_mode=g channel=6 ieee80211n=1 wmm_enabled=1 ht_capab=[HT40][SHORT-GI-20][DSSS_CCK-40] macaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 wpa=2 wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_passphrase=delautrecote rsn_pairwise=CCMP
