I have created a WiFi access point and I want to set the nickname field...
I am trying to set it using;
iwconfig wlan0 nick AP_NICK
However I am getting an unsupported error which. The USB Dongle is an Edimax EW-7711UAn, using the RT2X00USB driver.
My question is, is it the firmware/chipset or something else that is stopping me setting the APs nickname? Is there anyway around this?
If there is nothing I can do, does anyone have a suggestion on USB WiFi chipsets/drivers/dongles with this capability?
