The HostAP driver is designed for the Prism2 family of cards - you'll 
need to use a Cisco-compatible driver for this 350 series adapter. 
Check with your Linux distribution vendor for an appropriate driver, or 
you can try using the Cisco driver for Linux supplied at

It sounds like you are missing something in your kernel configuration, 
although I couldn't easily identify what is missing (sorry).  Do you 
have CONFIG_HOTPLUG and CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI enabled in your kernel

Today I stumbled across the world's largest hotspot.  The SSID is "linksys".
