HostAP was one of the most popular IEEE 802.11 device drivers for Linux and since November 2016 is officially obsolete in Linux kernel.[1] It works with cards using the Conexant (formerly Intersil) Prism 2/2.5/3 chipset and support Host AP mode, which allows a WLAN card to perform all the functions of a wireless access point.

The driver code was written by Jouni Malinen, hired by Atheros in 2008,[2] and was included into the main kernel tree in Linux 2.6.14.
