I'm trying to make my OpenSUSE desktop box work with a DLink wireless N Nano adapter. Additionally I'd like to make it the access point for my laptop.
The problem is - when I run
hostapd (with r8712u kernel module loaded via
modprobe) it fails with the following message:
nl80211 not found. nl80211 driver initialization failed.
OKay, when I tried (my mistake) to use
rtl8192se PCI driver it could find
compat-wireless for that though) but failed with a message about cannot create mon.wlan0 interface blah-blah
I'm pretty sure that I missed something because that device was reported to work with OpenSUSE 11.4 out of box.
r8712u driver kernel module does not properly load all the needed dependency modules and I could
modprobe them manually?
EDIT: I did
modprobe mac80211 and now hostapd fails with following message:
Failed to create interface mon.wlan0. nl80211 driver initialization failed.
