Did you installed the pae module? It was written by Gunter Burchardt to
control access to the port. It is a bit plain just now, but seems to work.
Hostap does just enable you to drive eapol over wired interfaces. You need
the extra kernel module to drop unassossiated packets. At the moment the
pae seems to only support kernel 2.4.
