i have set up hostapd and dnsmasq and ran into some issues. at first the issue was that hostapd didn't recognized the driver. after i deleted that line it did start up. then dnsmasq told me that there was an invalid option in the /etc/dnsmasq.conf which was the "listen-address" option. after deleting that line dnsmasq started up aswell and both services are running. but the problem i have now is that i don't get any signal to my devices. it should normally show the ssid "WiPi-Repeater" but i don't get any signal. i am using:
- Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
- TP-Link Archer T2U wifi dongle
- 2019-04-08-raspbian-stretch-full image.
I hope you guys can help me because i haven't found anything according to my problem yet.
Here is the hostapd.conf:
interface=wlan1 hw_mode=g channel=6 ieee80211n=1 wmm_enabled=1 ht_capab=[HT40][SHORT-GI-20][DSSS_CCK-40] macaddr_acl=0 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 auth_algs=1 wpa=2 wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK rsn_pairwise=CCMP ssid=WiPi-Repeater wpa_passphrase=mypassword
and here the dnsmasq.conf:
interface=wlan1 bind-interfaces server=18.104.22.168 domain-needed bogus-priv dhcp-range=192.168.178.50,192.168.178.150,12h
if i use
sudo systemctl is-active dnsmasq and
sudo systemctl is-active hostapd both are marked as
lsusb command i get:

If you need any more details i can give them but i guess i gave the most details. The only thing like i said is only that i don't get any SSID shown on my devices.
here are the Supported interface mode for Wiphy phy1 aswell:
Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * AP * P2P-client * P2P-GO * P2P-device
I wanted to repeat the connection from onboard to dongle. but since it won't let me do it and it doesn't show me an AP i can't repeat the wifi connection. what i can't do is that i would go from eth0 to wlan0 because i have no wired connection to repaeat since my rpi is going to be in the staircase. if i would find the driver that is installed for the wifi dongle i have i would try to use that for hostapd but yeah... idk where to find it.
