I solved the problem if it is possible to say so:) 
My D-Link DWL 520 are version D1 and they have another chipset, not Intersil Prism.

So be carefull with new D-link DWL 520 cards, as it was writen earlier in this mailing 
list, version C and now version D have other chipset (not Intersil Prism2.x/3). So they 
are not supported by hostap.
