Hello,

so, I've installed Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.36-1+deb8u2 (2016-10-19) x86_64 GNU/Linux

after installing there is no wlan interface...

dmesg gives this errors:
[ 5.998904] [drm:radeon_pci_probe] *ERROR* radeon kernel mode setting for R600 or later requires firmware-linux-nonfree.
[ 6.209947] rtl8723ae 0000:05:00.0: firmware: failed to load rtlwifi/rtl8723fw_B.bin (-2)
[ 6.843521] r8169 0000:02:00.0: firmware: failed to load rtl_nic/rtl8168e-3.fw (-2)

lsusb gets realtek device: Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:8723 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

googling get reply that I need to install non-free "firmware-realtek"
ok,
apt-get install firmware-realtek

now wlan0 interface present

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0d:f0:ac:7a:8f
BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

now I want to use hostapd to create WirelessAccessPoint using this interface...

and here I'm stuck...
- which driver to use in hostapd config?
- rfkill list tells that device is software blocked...

0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no


I need help what to do and how from this position...
