That sounds like your pcmcia-cs (actually, cardmgr) is configured to use
prism2_cs driver. If you want to use Host AP driver with that card, you
would need to change pcmcia-cs configuration for that card. Host AP
driver installation should have already copied hostap_cs.conf that
describes hostap_cs.o as the driver for Linksys WPC11. However, some
other configuration file can override this configuration. You would thus
need to comment out that other part refering to prism2_cs driver.
