    Use the iwconfig command to change the mode. For example:
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 mode Master
    Read the man pages for more info:
    Code:
    man iwconfig
    And also this:
    Code:
    iwconfig --help
    Also, not all cards can run in Master mode, which I believe is the same as the Access Point (AP) mode. Check this page for info on which cards can/cannot work in that mode:
