Hostapd & Alfa AWUS036AC Wireless Adapter

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to set up a wifi access point using an Alfa AWUS036AC Wireless Adapter. My hostapd.conf file is below. I am having three problems with the access point, and I believe they may be related. Any help is appreciated.

The three problems:

1. Network capture shuts down in the middle. Error: "network adapter on which the capture was being done is no longer running; the capture has stopped"

2. "Incorrect Password" error when the password is correct

3. Once connected to Mywifi, there is no internet available.

Hostapd.conf:

#hostapd.conf
interface=wlan0
driver=nl80211
ssid=Mywifi
channel=1
macaddr_acl=0
accept_mac_file=./allowed_macs
logger_syslog=-1
logger_syslog_level=2
wpa=2
wpa_passphrase=password1
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=CCMP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

I'm running hostapd, dnsmasq, iptable rules and ip forwarding. been running for years with out any issues. I shut down all networking services.

 

WPA_supplicant

networking

network-manager

 

I assume this is running on a computer or labtop?

 

this error with the adapter, when it happens check dmesg to see what other errors are reported. could check for firmware updates.

 

I would start off with a basic config. see if you can get a open wifi hotspot to work properly. then you can incorporate encryption and performance options. (from a glance your config looks fine)

 

you mention nothing about dnsmasq or iptable.

 

I can post my full configuration.  possibly tonight. 

 

there are other config files involved, your not giving enough information. my guess is the client can't establish a ip with the host. so a dnsmasq config is needed with also running ifconfig <DEVICE> up 192.168.69.1
