Hello Beat Meier and others

more details please ;)
1 are you using madwifi-bsd in both ends ?

2 have you removed the the openssl
  that were following you distribution,
  or have you just pointed out the openssl-0.9.7g
  source in the .config files ?

3 are you using openssl-0.9.7g in both ends ?

4 on what kernels is your setup based ?

i have tested this config
hostapd-0.4.1, wpa_supplicant-0.4.1
but no luck here :(

Best Regards
Lasse Jensen
