But what is the state with Debian Jessie in this matter? It comes with hostapd 2.3 and also updated realtek-firmware package. On Jessie the rtl8188cus runs with the rtl8192cu driver, which uses the mac80211 framework. Now the official hostapd wiki on kernel.org (https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use ... on/hostapd) says:
So, can I expect to be able to set rtl8188cus based WLAN adapters into AP mode with plain Debian Jessie (so, without installing modified drivers from some external sources, like Wheezy required)?All new cfg80211 (and mac80211) based drivers that implement AP functionality are supported using nl80211 interface.
