I have reinstalled my laptop running Debian Linux with kernel 2.6.10. Before
this reinstall, hostap was working good. Now, I can't receive data with the
wlan0 interface ( / /

While the ip adres of wlan0 is in the same subnet as the access point
(, he cannot send data to and receive data from the access point.
>From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
>From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable

Tcpdump on the laptop:
16:27:11.982102 arp who-has tell
This continues continue this way

When I use the standard kernel drivers, there are no problems. So it likes a
hostap problem, a configuration problem, or a problem with wlan0. But what?
I don't use any packet filter.

I need hostap for scanning, the kernel driver can't do that.
