I think that the madwifi part of the hostapd code
is broken :(
I am fighting to get hostapd in wpa-psk mode
to work with madwifi, but no success and my output
looks a little like yours
see the post "Wep doesn't work with atheros 5212" from
Beat Meier, but if you only want a simple wep solution
then you can use the madwifi driver itself (at the ap)
iwconfig ath0 key restricted
iwpriv ath0 authmode 2
then simple wep is used on the madwifi ap

The wpa_supplicant is working, a perfekt application
and pretty sure that Jouni Malinen
has his hands full at the moment ;)
