i'm using a Siemens I-Gate 11M Prism2 card. the card works fine in ap
mode in my laptop, but using it with hostap in another system (via
epa) produces problems. i tried various station firmwares (0.8.3,
1.5.6... ), hostap_cs / hostapd versions but the access point is still
not up... according to kismet (on my laptop), no packets are sent. if
i start hostapd with -dd, i get

>Opening raw packet socket for ifindex 17
>Using interface wlan0ap with hwaddr 00:90:d1:05:f1:07 and ssid 'test'
>Flushing old station entries
>Deauthenticate all stations
>Received 146 bytes management frame
>MGMT: BSSID=00:84:ba:ef:40:00 not our address
>Received 66 bytes management frame
>MGMT: BSSID=00:34:fe:75:40:00 not our address

hostapd still runs, but no further output is printed. when i use
strg+c to terminate hostapd, i get:

>Deauthenticate all stations
>cioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM]: Invalid argument
>Could not disable PrivacyInvoked for interface wlan0
>cioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: Interrupted system call
>Could not remove generic information element from interface wlan0

problems. both running >debian sarge and kernel 2.6.8-debian

according to /proc/interrupts the device is working: 
>10:       2294          XT-PIC  yenta, hostap_cs

any help please :)
