hostapd example configuration for high speed AC on 5GHz using WPA2

This example is using RTL8821AU chipset from a TP-Link T2U Plus USB adapter and other similar ones should work the same.

Here's how to get this chipset RTL8821AU working in Linux.

Here's how to get RTL8812 and RTL8822 working in Linux.

With these settings I can get very good speeds of 300+ mbit per second and for some reason the upload speed is faster than download.

Change wlan0 if your adapter has a different device name and make sure you set your WPA passphrase or change it.

# "a" simply means 5GHz
# the channel to use, 0 means the AP will search for the channel with the least interferences (ACS)
#the below doesn't work hostapd wouldn't start
# 802.11ac support


#end optimize
