Wifi hotspot on Rock64v2 USB adapter that works

Post by Joep »

Can anyone suggest a USB adapter that will work for hotspot/access point?


Trying to get Wifi Hotspot to work on Rock64v2, DietPi 6.25.3 and Odroid wifi module 3.
Wifi hotspot is loaded
Tor hotspot is loaded

hoastapd fails to start. Complains about the driver. Says driver initialization failed.

my hostapd.conf

interface=wlan0
driver=rtl871xdrv
ssid=hotspot1
hw_mode=g
channel=6
macaddr_acl=0
auth_algs=1
ssid=hotspot1
wpa=3
wpa_passphrase=hotspot1
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

Need some help please
thanks

@Joep
Could you please try the following for WiFi module 3:

Code: Select all

G_AGI --reinstall hostapd
G_CONFIG_INJECT 'driver=' 'driver=nl80211' /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf -dd
