Thanks for kindly reply

i am using 3com Airconnect 3CRWE777A-E1 network card with firmware 1.5.6(i
flashing it from 0.8.3 with hostap-utilities), i try hostap driver from
version 0.1.3,0.2.0 to 0.2.5. same problem happend. i suspect maybe
Wireless Extension on kernel 2.4.26 cannot support HOSTAP, i did not have
any problem on my redhat 9.0 with kernel 2.4.20 and kernel 2.4.22. 

I recompile my redhat linux 9.0 to kernel 2.4.26.

sorry to ask , i need to recompile wireless tool? what wireless tool u
mean here? recompile kernel? i tried even reinstall redhat 9.0 and
recompile to kernel 2.4.26. recompile hostap-driver? i tried

You will have to recompile the wireless tools to get rid of the warning.

What card? What firmware? Which version of HostAP driver?
(I assume it's the latest, but don't let us make assumptions - provide
some data)
