I am moving this to tech-net@, where it is more appropriate.
The manual should say that atw does not support host AP mode, yet.
Doesn't it? I have left the mode in the media options so that it is
easy for people to try to add host AP mode, but neither the state
machine nor the register settings are quite right.
I will commit the sources which resulted from my experiments with
adding host AP mode. A "hidden" AP (one that sends no beacons) might
be possible, but the ADM8211 has a bad habit of reduplicating Probe
Responses 48 times because of a bogus transmit-underflow exception.
Lucent cards are not patient enough to wait for 48 retransmissions
before sending an Authentication Request; they just give up. I did
get another atw to associate with an atw hidden AP, however.
