You shouldn't need pcmcia-cs is it's indeed a plx adapter (unless you are
using my plx9052 driver, but I guess you are not).

Do you see the PLX chip on the card?

What are the kernel messages when hostap_cs is loaded? Use dmesg to print
recent messages. Use "dmesg -n 8" to show all messages on the console.

Why is i82365 loaded? Do you have another PCMCIA adapter? If not, then
it may be you adapter that you think is PLX. Then make sure you set the
"irq_mode=0" parameter to the module.
What does "cardctl ident" show?

Please quote the error messages exactly, don't rephrase them.

That's very unclear. You are posting your interpretation instead of the
facts you are observing (e.g. the output of "ifconfig -a").
