This is the kernel log, when I start hostapd:
[ 104.314953] CFG80211-ERROR) wl_cfg80211_del_station : Disconnect STA : ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff scb_val.val 3 [ 104.489263] CFG80211-ERROR) check_dev_role_integrity : device role select failed

Thanks. It works great

@David_J_Hunt I followed your reply post and I am receiving the Failed message:
[....] Starting advanced IEEE 802.11 management: hostapdrmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory
I am using the latest Ubilinux. I am not sure what to do to fix this issue and set my Wifi as an Access Point.
duckhunter what version of Ubilinux are you using?
duckhunter, cat you post your hostapd.conf, because I always have the faild message :
[....] Starting advanced IEEE 802.11 management: hostapdrmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory.
I don't know how to fix it.
dottedquad I have fixed this fail.
you may update the hostapd file .you can build the hostapd file by yourself.
tar xzvf hostapd-x.y.z.tar.gz cd hostapd-x.y.z/hostapd
cp defconfig .config vi .config
../src/drivers/driver_nl80211.c:25:31: fatal error: netlink/genl/genl.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [../src/drivers/driver_nl80211.o] Error 1
sudo apt-get install libnl-dev libpopt-dev
then make success.
use the newest hostapd replace /usr/sbin/hostapd，
sudo /etc/init.d/hostapd restart
it works great.
