Again, I want to thank Jouni Malinen and the many others who have
contributed to this project.  I have been using hostap with my Linksys card
for about a year now, and I recently purchased several DLink DWL 520s for
use in a network.  The problem now is that after following the instructions
from the above post (using CVS and loading module with no_primary =1 option,
then [firmware rev 1.7.4]:

/sbin/prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /etc/firmware/pm010102.hex
/sbin/prism2_srec -gip wlan0 /etc/firmware/pm010102.hex
/sbin/prism2_srec -rp wlan0 /etc/firmware/rf010704.hex),

everything works great until reboot.  When my kernel 2.6.0 box loads,
'lspci' cant find the card.  I have to remove/ reseat the card for it to be
found again, then again follow the steps outlined above.  Is there something
that is locking the card up?  Should I try different firmware?
