Author Topic: Debian Wheezy with wifi in AP-mode on model 1001 - DS2-1221  (Read 4787 times)

Well, subject says it all. I'm successfully running different Dreamplugs in AP-mode, but only 0802-models (DS2-1131*). Now I thought I try something new with the 1001-models (DS2-1221*). Tough luck.

I tried different combinations of images and kernels with no luck. As I'm quite bandwith-limited where I live, I would like to know whether Wheezy is possible or if it's better to stick with Squeeze?

Thanks for any pointer

Which kernels ? wifi won't work at all with 0802-model kernels.

Wheezy is possible, but has no bearing, the AP operation is mainly dependant on the kernel (and it's modules).
As far as I am aware, the mainline vanilla kernel mwifiex module does not support AP mode.

Hi,

Can you explain a little bit why Wifi AP mode doesn't work any more on 802-models in recent kernels ?

Regards.

You have reversed my comment, to restate\clarify
'old kernel images will not provide wifi support on the newer dreamplugs'
I cannot confirm or deny wheter the image for a newer dreamplug will work on an older dreamplug (as I have not inspected one, but I suspect not).
