I am having issues getting the hotspot feature to work. I added a wifi dongle I purchased from: https://www.adafruit.com/products/814
The output of lsusb is: Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8178
I see it is loading the rtl8192cu module, but I see on the dmesg output:
[ 43.572442] cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain
[ 46.732703] cfg80211: Exceeded CRDA call max attempts. Not calling CRDA
Here is the complete dmesg and lsmod output: http://pastebin.com/yzz0EPt9
I see a wlan0 device with the 10.0.0.1 IP on the output of ifconfig, but when I run: iw wlan0 info
I get: command failed: No such device (-19)
I see the wlan0 is hard coded on the interfaces file.
Could this be related to the issue on this post: http://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/40738/jessie-cfg80211-calling-crda-to-update-world-regulatory-domain
“Looks like the CRDA package was missing from Jessie.”
Has anyone else tried a dongle based on that realtek dongle? it works on raspbian. I see that it is mentioned here: https://wiki.outernet.is/wiki/List_of_WiFi_dongles#Notes but I know that doesn’t mean anything.
