Intersil’s station firmware for Prism2 chipset supports a so called Host AP mode in which the firmware takes care of time critical tasks like beacon sending and frame acknowledging, but leaves other management tasks to host computer driver.

The driver has also various features for development debugging and intesril researching IEEE The external releases are only for older kernel versions and all the future development will be in the main kernel tree.

For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig 8.

Please, note that you will need quite recent version of Wireless Tools to use some features of the Host AP driver. However, a reverse engineering effort intereil made it possible to use the new Prism54 chipsets under the Linux and BSD operating systems. Copyright cJouni Malinen and contributors.
