I used the DLink DWL900AP+ for connection to ZComm Xi626 card with hostap v0.2.4 and all works great. Now, I have installed the DWL900AP+ revC as AP and DWL900AP+ revB as client and all works but I must install the fw3.07b2 (pre 3.10). Without this fw I cannot associate to this AP.
If you use the revB, I think, there are some limitation about number of connections on ethernet port. This limitation should not be in revC.
Can you be more spceific with your configuration? (revisions, firmwares, etc..)
