    234234The default {{{/etc/hostapd.conf}}} file contains detailed documentation and you can find more info [http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/hostapd here]. However, because every wireless cards' capabilities are vastly different from one another, Gateworks has written a script to help ascertain a proper {{{hostapd.conf}}} file. Though not 100% of the functionality mentioned in the ​[http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/hostapd hostapd documentation] is supported, it does help the user create a {{{hostapd.conf}}} file specific to their wireless card.

     540* {{{hostapd-conf}}} was written for and takes advantage of the bash shell, make sure you aren't running it with another shell program (ie Ubuntu's default "dash" shell)
    540541* ensure both hostapd and wpa_supplicant are not both trying to manage the interface (ie you have it configured for both AP and Client mode)
    541542* ensure your client can see the AP (ie {{{iw dev wlan0}}} scan for a Linux client, or use a wireless scanner such as 'Wifi Analyzer' on an Android device)
