Hi, everyone!

I want to use hostapd to setup a AP. but there are some problems.

Code:
# /etc/init.d/hostapd start

 * ERROR: hostapd needs service(s) net.wlan0


but I use wlp3s0 in fact... :(


Code:

% cat /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

ssid=test
wpa_passphrase=234567890
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
interface=wlp3s0
auth_algs=3
channel=11
driver=nl80211
hw_mode=g
logger_stdout=-1
logger_stdout_level=2
max_num_sta=5
rsn_pairwise=CCMP
wpa=2
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP


how to solve it :?:
thanks in advance.


================================

Code:
 cat /etc/conf.d/hostapd
# Space separated List of interfaces which needs to be started before
# hostapd
INTERFACES="lan0"


if you want to bridge your wifi to other devices to create wired/virtual lan with wifi (or simply to allow starting dhcpd and wifi independently) write bridge's name there.
If you don't, empty the value.

In /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf you can provide bridge name, so hostapd will bind to alreardy configured bridge. Again, this is optional. You can ignore that feature if you're happy without it.

me too don't have wlan0, my wireless interface name is wlo1 so i've set interface=wlo1 in hostapd.conf. hostapd service on start says
Code:

Service `hostapd' needs non existent service `net.wlan0'


I've also tried replacing every wlo1 with wlan0 in hostapd.conf, conf.d/net and init.d/net.wlan0 in vein.
