What does this mean exactly? I’m able to connect to WiFi networks, but I’m currently unable to create a WiFi access point using this image. Is this related to the above “no wireless tools” note?

Is there anything else I can try?

I am successfully loading the bcmdhd kernel module and using the following to try and create a WiFi AP but it is not showing up:
