    Access point on atheros AR2413

    Another non-standard problem.

    I run multiple-uses Linux box: TV, movies, router, SMB and AP. The interesting part is Access Point.

    I created it using madwifi drivers, and it's working fine. Except.

    Recently I bought Asus R50A. It runs Windows7, and it's wireless card is Marvell SDIO one.

    The problem is that when Asus connects to my AP, I get dreaded "missed beacon" bug - which is, from what I read, unsolvable.

    So, the question is: are there any other drivers I can create AP on?

    The hardware:
    04:09.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01)

    OK, found that ath5k+hostapd (+kernel >2.6.31) is supposed to work. Only problem, there's no usable howto.

    So, please - does anyone know of one?
