  1. Hello, finally I've switched to Armbian hostapd despite the loss of WPS support (I was using the push-button function with stock Debian hostapd). I confirm that both brcmfmac and 8811au based wifi devices work fine now Thanks for your time and support, Romain
  2. I confirm that brcmfmac works with Armbian hostapd however there's no WPS support and I can't get it to work either in ac mode with my 8811au based wifi device. For the while I'm stuck to Armbian 5.60 with Debian hostapd, both wifi devices working (embedded and USB adapter) and WPS support.
  3. Until now, I've been using what seems the official hostapd.conf man page here https://w1.fi/cgit/hostap/plain/hostapd/hostapd.conf Yes, stock Debian hostapd (2:2.4-1+deb9u2) comes with WPS support, unlike Armbian hostapd it seems.
  4. Igor, just installed Armbian hostapd and tried it with my config file for the embedded AP6210 wifi chipset. It has been working fine until I use WPS related configuration items, among others. Below the result of the command hostapd with my config file as an argument : Line 32: unknown configuration item 'wps_state' Line 33: unknown configuration item 'ap_setup_locked' Line 34: unknown configuration item 'os_version' Line 36: unknown configuration item 'manufacturer' Line 37: unknown configuration item 'device_name' Line 39: unknown configuration item 'device_type' Line 40: unknown configuration item 'friendly_name' Line 41: unknown configuration item 'model_description' Line 42: unknown configuration item 'manufacturer_url' Line 43: unknown configuration item 'config_methods' Line 44: unknown configuration item 'pbc_in_m1' Line 45: unknown configuration item 'ap_pin' 12 errors found in configuration file '/etc/hostapd_24GHz.conf' Failed to set up interface with /etc/hostapd_24GHz.conf Failed to initialize interface Is Armbian hostapd compiled without WPS support ?
  5. Yes, it's already the way I use it but I thought you were meaning that there was just one config file in your post above...doesn't matter anyway
  6. Can this work with two APs/adapters at the same time, I've realised there's only one hostapd config involved ?
  7. OK, I'm not used to armbian-config but I'm gonna test this then. I'll keep you informed
  8. No good news Igor...to sum up things, the different options for the while are: - Armbian 5.60/kernel 4.14/Debian hostapd (Amrbian hostapd not tested) => both brcmfmac and 8812au working; - Armbian 5.73+/kernel 4.19/Debian hostapd => only 8812au working ; - Armbian 5.73+/kernel 4.19/Armbian hostapd => only brcmfmac working. Thank you very much for your concern though.
  9. It's an rtl8811au based wifi device handled by the 8812au module, my mistake.
  10. Igor, I don't get the point of the powered USB hub because my rtl8812au based wifi device already works as an AP directly plugged into one of my Cubietruck USB ports. It is an USB 2.0 device however (https://aliexpress.com/item/EDUP-Brand-Dual-Band-11ac-600Mbps-wifi-adapter-6dbi-wifi-Adapter-USB-Antenna-Black-usb-wireless/32798559832.html), not USB3, maybe that's the point ?
  11. Well, I'm not much surprised that it works with Armbian hostapd because it was already the case in one of my previous posts above. Problem is that if I use Armbian hostpad, my setup works with the embedded AP6210 but it doesn't work anymore with my other wifi device based on rtl8812au chipset and I don't know why:\ I want to get both b/g/n 2.4GHz and ac 5GHz APs working, this was the case with Debian hostapd before I upgrade to Armbian 5.70. I'll give a try to Armbian 5.74 (compiling it right now) + Debian hostapd first then will try Armbian hostapd if it still doesn't work. Thanks
  12. Hi Igor, looks promising, thanks ! Do you use Armbian's custom hostapd package or the one from official Debian repo (2:2.4-1+deb9u2) ?
  13. Hi Igor, I use hostapd from official Debian repo (2:2.4-1+deb9u2), not the Armbian one, and it still doesn't work with module brcmfmac and ARMBIAN 5.73. So I uninstalled the "official" hostapd and tried the Armbian one : now hostapd works with the sample configuration file you provide but it doesn't with the one (attached) I've successfully used until now :\ With my configuration file and official hostapd, I get the following result with command "hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd_2.4GHz -dd": root@cubietruck:~# hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd_24GHz.conf -dd random: Trying to read entropy from /dev/random Configuration file: /etc/hostapd/hostapd_24GHz.conf ctrl_interface_group=0 rfkill: initial event: idx=0 type=1 op=0 soft=0 hard=0 rfkill: initial event: idx=1 type=1 op=0 soft=0 hard=0 nl80211: Using driver-based roaming 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: Using driver-based off-channel TX nl80211: Supported vendor command: vendor_id=0x1018 subcmd=1 nl80211: Use separate P2P group interface (driver advertised support) nl80211: use P2P_DEVICE support nl80211: Disable use_monitor with device_ap_sme since no monitor mode support detected nl80211: interface wlan0 in phy phy0 nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 3 (AP) nl80211: Setup AP(wlan0) - device_ap_sme=1 use_monitor=0 nl80211: Subscribe to mgmt frames with AP handle 0x636e38 (device SME) nl80211: Register frame type=0xd0 (WLAN_FC_STYPE_ACTION) nl_handle=0x636e38 match= nl80211: Register frame command failed (type=208): ret=-22 (Invalid argument) nl80211: Register frame match - hexdump(len=0): [NULL] nl80211: Could not configure driver mode nl80211: deinit ifname=wlan0 disabled_11b_rates=0 nl80211: Remove monitor interface: refcount=0 nl80211: Remove beacon (ifindex=4) netlink: Operstate: ifindex=4 linkmode=0 (kernel-control), operstate=6 (IF_OPER_UP) nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 2 (STATION) nl80211: Teardown AP(wlan0) - device_ap_sme=1 use_monitor=0 nl80211 driver initialization failed. hostapd_interface_deinit_free(0x633cd8) hostapd_interface_deinit_free: num_bss=1 conf->num_bss=1 hostapd_interface_deinit(0x633cd8) wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED hostapd_bss_deinit: deinit bss wlan0 wlan0: AP-DISABLED hostapd_cleanup(hapd=0x6349e0 (wlan0)) hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started hostapd_interface_deinit_free: driver=(nil) drv_priv=(nil) -> hapd_deinit hostapd_interface_free(0x633cd8) hostapd_interface_free: free hapd 0x6349e0 hostapd_cleanup_iface(0x633cd8) hostapd_cleanup_iface_partial(0x633cd8) hostapd_cleanup_iface: free iface=0x633cd8 The result of "ip a" shows that interface wlan0 is DOWN root@cubietruck:~# ip a 4: wlan0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state DOWN group default qlen 1000 link/ether 6c:fa:a7:14:0e:fa brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet brd scope global wlan0 valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever Thanks again for your help.

  14. Hello Igor, is this problem fixed in ARMBIAN 5.73 please ? Thanks, Romain
