    4 Since 1/23/2006 (rev1407+) Madwifi will create a user station (a [wiki:VAP] of type "sta") by default.  Prior versions of the MadWifi code did not do this, and many of the scripts and documents on this wiki reflect this prior method.  Please keep this in mind as you read through the wiki:  all post r1407 MadWifi code allows for the autocreation of a [wiki:VAP], and all prior releases do not. ''This feature does Not Change the behavior of wlanconfig.  However, any method or script that employed wlanconfig to construct multiple [wiki:VAP VAPs] will not work as before, you should use the "autocreate=none" module option, as described below.''

    66The default autocreation of the "sta" [wiki:VAP] (the ath0 station) makes the modprobe ath_pci instruction conform better with generally expected driver behavior, and many simple wireless support tools will now work with MadWifi when they previously could not.
