Thanks for this package rpn!

This is an immensely valuable replacement.

@Niluge_KiWi Hi! Thanks for the patch, though I'd like to keep this as close to the [community] hostapd package as possible. Why don't you ask the [community] maintainer to merge your patch and then I'll do the same?

Hi,
I updated the noscan patch from openwrt:

Could you merge this?

@apnkp That's it. Thank you!

@bartki Add 'CONFIG_WPS=y' to the .config file before compiling.

Hi, if I add the option 'wps_state=0' (which is the documented default) explicitly, hostapd fails to start with the error message: unknown configuration item 'wps_state'. Could somebody verify this?!

@pierrec Many of the in kernel drivers for Realtek USB WiFi adapters are in the staging tree and hence buggy.
Try installing the appropriate Realtek driver for your device:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=0&K=Realtek

BTW, I get the same error when using the in kernel driver.
