See the output of ifconfig and route.  Maybe wlan0 gets an address in the
same subnet as eth0 and becomes the default gateway.

p80211.o comes from linux-wlan-ng, another driver for Prism cards.  You
don't need it with hostap.  If you quoted the exact message instead of
rephrasing it I could give you a better answer.

I don't know what accessap_pci is, but it has nothing to do with hostap.
Ask in the mailing list for that software.
