While we're on this topic, what is the recomended firmware for running
with the hostap driver.
Here is what I have:
hostap_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
hostap_cs: 0.2.0 - 2004-02-15 (Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at cc.hut.fi>)
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (constant)
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (from config)
Checking CFTABLE_ENTRY 0x01 (default 0x01)
IO window settings: cfg->io.nwin=1 dflt.io.nwin=1
io->flags = 0x0046, io.base=0x0000, len=64
hostap_cs: Registered netdevice wifi0
hostap_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 3, io 0x0100-0x013f
prism2_hw_init: initialized in 200 ms
wifi0: NIC: id=0x800c v1.0.0
wifi0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.1
wifi0: STA: id=0x1f v1.8.0
wifi0: registered netdevice wlan0
The card is an senao/EnGenius 200mW pcmcia with external ant. I get
really unstable speeds and odd results from iwconfig.
