Hi Dominaezzz, Thanks for the info. Having a blank wpa_supplicant file is fine, that doesn't cause an issue.

Your dnsmasq output is fine, the lines you mention, dnsmasq[733]: using nameserver 8.8.8.8#53"
"dnsmasq[733]: read /etc/hosts - 5 addresses"
"dnsmasq[734]: Too few arguments."

are the same as my output. I decided to do a system update this evening and now I am getting issues as well. My laptop will connect to the AP and eventually get internet through the access point but my android tablet won't hold a connection. So may be related to your issue. It was all working fine until the update.
Check your hostapd status as well to see if that shows an issue.

I will try and solve my issue which may be related :(
