Hi Jouni,

can you send me the hostapd.conf file, the hostapd version, and
hostapd's defconfig you used successfully with the Win7 devices? I use
here different drivers (wl12xx_sdio/nl80211) but its not working even
with a recent version like hostap_1_0_rc2. I will try here the same
config set you have...
