Linux WiFi Access Point (Wireless AP)

Introduction

This document serves as a general guide to setting up a Wireless Access Point (AP) in Linux using the following LM WiFi adapters and modules based upon the Realtek RTL8188CUS chipset:

Other LM products may also work with Host AP, please contact us for more details. Read more

LM809, LM006, LM820 & LM821: Linux driver installation

There are three different drivers available for these products. We recommend that you use the ‘in kernel tree’ driver where possible, which essentially makes these products plug & play in most Linux distributions which use a recent version of the Kernel. Read more

Linux WiFi Ad-hoc mode

Ad-hoc, or IBSS mode allows you to create a wireless network without a central access point. This guide demonstrates a simple Ad-hoc network using one of our adapters and some basic tools found in most modern Linux distributions.

  • At the present time, IBSS may suffer from high levels of packet loss due to an issue with the driver.
