    WiFi Dongle/Card in Master Mode, on Hardy?

    I'm hoping to connect a USB WiFi dongle to a Ubuntu Hardy (LTS, 8.04.3, kernel 2.6.24) box, and to configure it as an Access Point (ie, in "Master Mode"). After reading very many posts here, etc, it seems that only devices which use these 3 chipsets have any chance of success: Ralink RT2x00[usb], Prism/Atheros/Intersil (eg, ISL3887), Marvell (8385/8686). And then, only with more recent kernels, especially 2.6.29.

    So, if anyone has succeeded (on Hardy), I would be very grateful for any pointers. Compiling drivers, tweaking sources/config files, etc, is acceptable, as long as the instructions are "moderately" complete!

    If no solutions exist for any USB devices (in Master Mode) on Hardy, then I'd appreciate info on any PCI devices that might work on Hardy, and, failing that, on any USB (or PCI!) devices that might work on more recent releases of Ubuntu.

    Thank you,
    - Mike
