Hi all,

We have PCMCIA PRISM 2.5 card with such ident:

NIC ID=0x800c v1.0.0
PRI v1.1.0
STA v1.6.3

All work perfectly in Ad-hoc mode and in Managed mode with Lucent AP.
But we can't get it worked in Master mode. When we turn on Master mode nothing happened.

if we turn on debug with prism2_param debug 3
we can see only such lines in log:

kernel: wlan0: TX status=0x0000 retry_count=0 tx_rate=0 tx_control=0x000c; jiffies=3047063
kernel:    FC=0x0008 (type=2:0) dur=0x0000 seq=0x0000 data_len=36
kernel:    A1=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff A2=00:03:2f:00:99:e2 A3=02:03:9a:ed:99:e2 A4=00:00:00:00:00:00
kernel:    dst=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff src=00:03:2f:00:99:e2 len=36

Does it possible to run such type of card in Master mode? Any hints?

Any information appricated.

WBR, Alexey.
