History

#1 Updated by Stefan Sperling over 5 years ago

Current patch.
While joining an existing IBSS network works with this, the device is not generating beacons so it cannot start an IBSS.

Beacon generation is also broken with the Linux in-tree driver. Realtek's vendor driver for Linux supports beacons.

#2 Updated by Stefan Sperling over 5 years ago

Latest Realtek vendor driver I could find.

#3 Updated by Stefan Sperling over 5 years ago

  • File kern.log added
  • Tracker changed from Feature to ToDo

some debug output from the vendor driver

#4 Updated by Stefan Sperling over 5 years ago
