I have 2.4.31 (current 2.4 kernel). I know that driver originally included
in kernel is not compatible with hostapd. But as I say  I downloaded patch
+ src from http://www.prism54.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/trunk/ and hostapd
works. But not with WPA.  I think it will be working but hostapd (seems to
me) want start WPA incorectly (with that kernel driver).

If there is no other way, can you please tell me which driver is OK for
running hostapd with WPA ?  I need WPA-PEAP and 802.11g support from the
driver (and card also).

Thank you.
