Hi there,

I am trying to set up s wireless hotspot using the guide on this forum, but am having some problems. I have got a TP Link TL-WN 725N USB wireless dongle and have managed to get the basic device working by installing the RTL 8188eu drivers, but whenever I try to start the hostapd service it fails to start.

I have tried building a version of hostapd, specially written for RTL drivers (from github), but that seems to be for the RTL871x driver set, and does not work either.

Has anyone managed to get this combination of hardware and software to work?

If not, can anyone post a link to a product that will definitely work with the hostapd guide on this forum so that I can buy one?

Thanks

P.s the 725N does support AP mode.
