Hi,

 

We are using LS1012A FRDM board. We want to configure usb wifi dongle Edimax EW-7811Un. After connecting USB dongle to LS1012AFRDM board I am getting following messages in kernel log during bootup.

........

.........

 

Configuring network interfaces... done.  
Starting system message bus: dbus.  
Starting HOSTAP Daemon: Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf  
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM]: Invalid argument  
Could not enable hostapd mode for interface wlan0  
hostap driver initialization failed.  
wlan0: interface state UNINITIALIZED->DISABLED  
wlan0: AP-DISABLED   
hostapd_free_hapd_data: Interface wlan0 wasn't started  
Starting system log daemon...0  
Starting kernel log daemon...0  
Starting internet superserver: xinetd.

 

As can be observed form above log hostap driver initialization is failing so kindly suggest How to resolve this issue.

 

Thanks & regards

Minal
