> > When wireless interface was running in Access Point mode, I could still use Kismet Drone on Router, but it could not hop channel, I got “ERROR: mac80211_setchannel() could not set channel 4/2427 on interface 'wlan0mon' err -25”.
> You can't channel hop and be an AP at the same time - the AP would constantly change channels.
> If you want to run wids+ap, you have to disable channel hopping.

Here is a paper I wrote last year relevant to the subject that may help you with this project. Good luck
