Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

When I create the third virtual AP on madwifi, the OS deadlocks. It does not response any event from mouse and keyboard. The only way to reboot the system is power off.


  • Platform: Dell Latitude D410
  • Netgear WAG511 v2


  • Ubuntu, kernel 2.6.20-16-generic


wlanconfig ath0 destroy
wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
wlanconfig ath1 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
wlanconfig ath2 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode ap
