Need help to create soft ap with create_ap as it is not working

I'm trying to create a soft ap using create_ap in my centos 6.9 desktop with TP-LINK's tl-w725n but it gives me the following error what am i doing wrong??



Code:
shan@localhost ~]$ sudo create_ap wlan0 usb0 shan2naruto-ap
[sudo] password for shan: 
WARN: Your adapter does not fully support AP virtual interface, enabling --no-virt
Config dir: /tmp/create_ap.wlan0.conf.7EloCuKH
PID: 3682
Sharing Internet using method: nat
iptables v1.4.7: option `-w' requires an argument
Try `iptables -h' or 'iptables --help' for more information.  

Doing cleanup.. [shan@localhost ~]$

can anyone please guide me on what i'm doing wrong.

i'm also open to ndiswrapper method to install drivers but dont know how to as the instructions are too technical

and if there is a way to link wine with USB devices also pl let me know as i can boot the drivers from the CD but not let itdetect the usb adapter. If you know how pl let me know

i would greatly appreciate if someone can teach me what to do or point me to a beginner friendly guide.

Welcome to the forum.

Please become accustomed to provide decent context info of your problem.

It is always helpful to carefully and detailedly phrase a request, and to support it with system info like OS and shell, related environment (variables, options), preferred tools, adequate (representative) sample input and desired output data and the logics connecting the two including your own attempts at a solution, and, if existent, system (error) messages verbatim, to avoid ambiguities and keep people from guessing.

From what you post it seems you are using iptables with the -w option not supplying a required argument. For any further info please provide more evidence.

@rudiC sorry for my impatient atitude.

i actually bought a TP-LINK device with the code name tl-w725n v2 to turn my old system with centos6.9 in to a hotspot for other devices in my home. So, after googling around i followed a tutorial (don't know which site it was once again sorry) and downloaded rtl8188eu drivers through github and successfully installed it then i went on to install create_ap along with its dependencies to create a hotspot but nothing seems to be working as ifconfig has stopped showing wlan0 and create hotspot gives the above error when trying to initialize it.

I'm also open to installing it through wine or ndiswrapper but lack the knowledge to do it on my own thats why i came to this forum and posted it in a hurry. Pardon me.
