Hi Qiang Li - Mpu Se Wigros Sun Yixing Kong alejandrolozano Tony Zheng JackLee1z raymond wang


Development board: MCIMX28EVK

Linux-kernel version:2.6.35

Wifi Driver:- Marvell SD8787


Successfully booting from sd card and logged in as root( freescale login: root).


1.insmod mlan.ko

2.insmod sd8xxx.ko [drv_mode=3] [fw_name=mrvl/sd8787_uapsta.bin]

Station mode is configured and I am able to ping by using the following commands


ifconfig mlan0 up

iwlist mlan0 scan

iwconfig mlan0 essid DTS_WORKSPACE


udhcpc -f -q -n -i mlan0 udhcpc



But not able to ping after applying the ap configuration commands


ifconfig uap0 up

iwpriv uap0 start

iwpriv uap0 bssstart

udhcpd /etc/udhcpd.conf


The above commands are used to configure it as ap.


Do I have to use any additional commands ? Is hostapd necessary?
