now I have 2.6.15:
lautrec:/home/leonardo/src/hostapd-0.4.7# iwconfig --version
iwconfig  Wireless-Tools version 27
          Compatible with Wireless Extension v11 to v17.

	  Kernel    Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v19.

	  ath0      Recommend Wireless Extension v13 or later,
	            Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v19.

I've madwifi-old from svn, and hostapd 0.4.7, that is, nothing from debian
stable distribution.

The behaviour of madwifi driver is randomic.  I was able to have it working with hostapd and WPA-PSK,
having it ping for 10 minutes then it stops. After a random number of
stop&start of hostapd it freezes the kernel. 
Now I'm asking: is there a suggested kernel/madwifi combination that is

I'll try if I can, but the question remains: you say madwifi-new is
unstable, is there any stable version?
