I run this command on my Fedora:

iw list | grep "Supported interface modes" -A 8

It showed my adapter doesn't support AP mode. But I checked this Asus USB-AC51 and Driver capabilities, the website showed mt76 supported AP mode. Is that driver or adapter problem?

    Supported interface modes:
     * managed
     * monitor
Band 1:
    Capabilities: 0x17e
        HT20/HT40
        SM Power Save disabled
        RX Greenfield
        RX HT20 SGI

My adapter is at Port 12.

/:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/8p, 10000M
/:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/16p, 480M

I'm sorry but where did you find that this adapter has this hardware capability? All sources I found DO NOT say it has this capability in hardware, so ergo, it does not, so it's a hardware problem.
