fedora as wifi access point; usb recommendation
 
Hi all,

I want to configure an f-box as a wi-fi access point. Anybody out there
doing that?

Looked at hostapd but am confused about nl80211 requirement. I built
from src and it seems to include that driver intrinscally as well as
atheros and broadcom support.

Does the fedora build of hostapd provide all of these required drivers?

I hope all I need is a supported adapter. Recommendations?

Lots of googling but still confused.

Helpers?

Thanks,
Mike Wright

I've tried this with some (but limited) success. Here is
my saga:

The new ralink dongle it says I got working in that
web page, is actually quite finicky. I have to try it
several times, plugging and unplugging and starting
over, and eventually I can get it to connect and work
(and not overheat). Here's the bug I submitted:

I haven't tried the old or new dongle with fedora 16
yet. Perhaps they'll work better.
