I want to change my puppy laptop into a wifi access point
I was looking at this post
http://208.109.22.214/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=68127
This is a forum post with the title "Puppy as a wifi access point - OLD !!"
I did it upto the line where it says

Quote:
Or for the hostap_pci/hostap_cs drivers, do this instead
ifconfig wlan0 down
iwconfig wlan0 mode Master

but when I issue iwconfig wlan0 mode Master command, it says

Code:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
Set failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument


I don't know how to proceed any further
Any help will be appreciated

Puppy: version: 5.1.1
Computer Compaq 620
