    Laptop as an Access Point


    Dear friends ,

    I am currently doing my assignment on building an access point on laptop using Linux.

    I have search for the driver for access point, that is HostAP. This HostAP required Prism Chipset in order to run.

    Do you all know any other driver that can make my laptop become an access point?

    I am trying very hard to search it. Please assist, thousand thank.

    You may create an access point with any card that supports Master mode, you will need to make it behave like a router. There are lots of tutorials in the internet
