#6139 closed defect (fixed)

hostapd fails to start when hwmode is set to 11a, 11b or 11bg

Reported by: js@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Madwifi init script accepts and sets the correct hwmode in this format (11a, 11b or 11bg) when WPA/PSK encryption is not set. Hostapd requires hwmode to be set without '11' prefix.

similar problem with r19254, wl500gPv1 atheros wifi.

I had to edit /lib/wifi/ to hardcode hwmode=a to get my wireless working. I use psk2 encryption. Without the change, the generated /var/run/hostapd-ath0.conf always contains hwmode=11a and hostapd doesn't start. Editing /etc/config/wireless doesn't work.
