change of problem

i have big trouble with Asus WL-138G driver

first, i tried to install the official driver from FAIL !!!! to much for me

after i searched google and i find out that i need ndiswrapper and xp driver. also done that, driver installed succesufully, working....

for my linux box to become access poing, i need to execute the command:
iwconfig wlan0 mode Master
but the result is: Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

on another forum i read that the problem is caused by the driver and that i should use the default driver

done that, same error.

the problem is that the command "iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed" works fine

any ideas? can anyone help ?
