I have seen similar problems with one card. The station did not seem to
send anything out, but just kept reporting association failed errors.
However, I have not yet had enough time to debug this further. I have
usually been able to get the station associated by doing a reset on the
station host (i.e., not changing anything in the AP) with 'iwpriv wlan0
reset 2' or 'iwpriv wlan0 reset 0'. Does that help in your case? Have
you tested the same station a non-HostAP access point?

Could you please send the dmesg output from the AP running the latest
CVS snapshot of Host AP driver? After the TX callback addition, the
driver should report both the incoming auth frame and the ack frame.

I'm not sure about firmware, but I would guess that it is either
driver or firmware. Wireless extensions or wireless tools version should
not affect this. I will need to take a closer look at this at some
point. Anyway, station functionality in the Host AP driver is not
exactly the top priority for me (although, I use it in testing the AP
functionality, so it should work at least to some degree ;-).
