I am using the XP default client with the latest service pack. The 
client card is a Netgear WAG 511 and it i working with other APs.
I made it for it to work but not every time. Sometimes it works, 
sometimes it doesnt without changing the configuration.
When configuring WPA PSK I saw that if I specify
hostapd does not work correctly, while if I dont specify these two 
parameters it works. I still didnt look in the code how these two 
parameters are used, but I was wondering why.
Is the WPA-PSK part in hostapd considered as finished or is somebody 
still working on it?
THank you,
