Which firmware version are you using in the wlan card that tries to act
as an AP and station at the same time? Please note that most firmware
versions do not work in this mode.. I think I have been able to use this
with STA f/w version 0.6.2, 0.7.6, and 0.8.0. Most 1.x.z versions do not
work (they deauthenticate immediately when receiving any data). Some of
the latest versions might work. There was some discussion about this on
the mail list at some point.
