I have a WPC11 Rev. 3:

prism2_cs loads and reports:
Feb 13 14:51:57 KIMBA kernel: ident: nic h/w: id=0x801b 1.0.0
Feb 13 14:51:57 KIMBA kernel: ident: pri f/w: id=0x15 1.1.0
Feb 13 14:51:57 KIMBA kernel: ident: sta f/w: id=0x1f 1.4.2

So I believe I have a proper card for hostap_cs.  Is this correct?

At this point, I'm letting pcmcia load up the prism2* modules, and then I 
manually rmmod them.  Then, I modprobe hostap_crypt, hostap, and hostap_cs 
(in that order).  However, I then no longer have an interface associated 
with the wireless card.

I'm running a modified version of the Red Hat 2.4.18-24.7.x kernel which 
I've patched to include wireless extension v.15 and hostap-2002-10-12.

Here's the dmesg of the module load:
hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
hostap_cs: hostap_cs.c 0.0.0 2002-10-12 (SSH Communications Security Corp, 
Jouni Malinen)
hostap_cs: (c) Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at>

What is "0.0.0?"

Thank you.
