Hello everyone,

I'm working on a personal project using ubuntu server 10.4 and an old wireless card. (Don't know the manufacturer). I'm trying to make the card visible to other wireless devices like an access point. Anyone know how this is done?

I tried using

iwconfig wlan0 mode master

but what I kept getting was

SET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument

Ok well I realized my wireless card probably doesn't support master mode or maybe the drivers. Is there a specific driver that is best suited for these things?

You might want to try

lsmod

to find out more information about the wireless card (and post output here so we might be more helpful).
