The problem here was that person in question obviously didn't do his
homework. He had already tried the acx100 driver and if he had done some
reading he would know the chip in the card is indeed a TI ACX100, and not
a prism2/2.5/3. He could also have searched the archives...
Anyway i also had problems finding prism2 cards, but i did my homework
before buying them or installing hostAP.
