Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

Following scenario, on my MacBookPro? Revision 3, Atheros card with device-id 0024:

root@EspriT:/home/file# wlanconfig ath0 destroy
root@EspriT:/home/file# wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
root@EspriT:/home/file# iwconfig ath0 freq 2.412
root@EspriT:/home/file# iwpriv ath0 mode 11b
Interface doesn't accept private ioctl...
mode (8BE2): Invalid argument

If I do not set the frequency before setting the modulation, everything works, as it does in sta mode.
