Hi all,

I want to configure an f-box as a wi-fi access point.  Anybody out there 
doing that?

Looked at hostapd but am confused about nl80211 requirement.  I built 
from src and it seems to include that driver intrinscally as well as 
atheros and broadcom support.

Does the fedora build of hostapd provide all of these required drivers?

I hope all I need is a supported adapter.  Recommendations?

Lots of googling but still confused.
