Only the firmware of your card is not compatible with the HostAP mode, so
other modes should work!.
This can easily be changed as is also described in the article ( or one of
the other 2 about wlans) on the site you mention. The trick is to load
another secondary firmware in RAM. I tried this with the WPC 11 (pcmcia version)
and this works pretty well.
