How to use wifi as access point (master mode)

http://wiki.debian.org/zd1201

The zd1201 driver supports master mode operation, for use as a basic access point. This requires access point firmware (zd1201-ap.fw) to be downloaded to the device, instead of the default station firmware.

Provide ap=1 as a option to the zd1201 module:

echo options zd1201 ap=1 >> /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf

Physically disconnect your ZD1201-based device and remove the zd1201 driver:

modprobe -r zd1201
