I have successfully installed and run the HOSTAP in my Redhat 7.2. I used the version Prism2-2002-05-19. I used the wireless-tools from the Redhat 7.2.
However, I could not use iwconfig to set parameters. I read previous emails about this topic. Have not found the similiar problem I met.
I could use "iwconfig wlan0" to view the data. but when I run
iwconfig wlan0 essid XXXX
iwconfig wlan0 channel X
I always got "SIOCSIWXXXX: Operation not permitted".
What did I do wrong? Thanks.
