hostap doesnt bring up wlan0
Hi, I just reinstalled slackware 10.1. I have a SMC 2532w-b that was working when I was using the 2.4.x kernel, I upgraded to the newest 2.6 kernel, installed hostap again, and it stopped working. I installed the wlan-ng drivers and they work, but they are so hard to deal with, and they are not what I want to use anyway.
I had hostap drivers on this laptop before with a 2.6 kernel and they worked fine.
-I get no install errors
-lsmod reveals that hostap_cs and hostap drivers are loaded when I insert the card
-here is my dmesg
the driver just seems to get stuck, and not spit out any error messages. The card works in windows and wlan-ng, and like I said, worked with hostap and 2.6 with a previuos installation.
I am so stuck at this point :(
I hate letting posts go unresoved, especially sine I may be the one looking for this info again.
I reinstalled slack, only this time I used 10.2. I upgraded to the 184.108.40.206 kernel, and still coundlnt get hostap to work, my solution: was to use 2.4 series of kernels, even though i like 2.6 way better
had exactly the same problem some minutes ago, but i could fix it.
wlan-card: ASUS Spacelink WL100
product info: "ASUS", "802_11b_PC_CARD_25", "Version 01.00", ""
manfid: 0x02aa, 0x0002
PCMCIA in kernel-tree
hotplug version : 20040923-r1
what i did:
because gentoo packet hostap-driver
did not work 4 me because it made no hostap_cs.ko
i used latest stable hostap-driver-0.3.9 from http://hostap.epitest.fi
then i got your error-message:
hostap_cs lacks a requisite callback function ...
no interface at this time
i used hostap-driver-0.4.5
in Makefile i had to change KERNEL_PATH to KERNEL_PATH=/usr/src/linux
and now i have my wlan0-interface :-)
