802.11g USB wireless adapter with Linux AP support [closed]

Are there any USB wireless adapters out there that support 802.11g in AP mode under Linux? Binary drivers are a no-go, as I plan to use it with an ARM device. Support for WPA would be very desirable as well.

"It appears that the Linksys WUSB54G is supported by prism54, which claims to support AP mode, so I'll give that a shot. Moshen pointed me to linux-drivers.org, which pointed me in the right direction.


The WUSB54G has multiple variants, not all of which are supported by prism54. I ended up finding a Netgear WG121, which worked nicely through prism54."

"I'm not sure about non-x86 support, but I could get a ralink PCI card to work in Master Mode very easily (after a lot of previous attempts). I've posted the details in my blog.

I know that USB ralink cards are more trickier to work in Master Mode, and I don't know the current status for USB cards, but you might check the rt2x00 project forum.

So, besides prism54, you might also try ralink (rt2x00 driver) devices."
