i have a lucent wavelan silver pcmcia card. the hostap_cs driver
(hostap-2002-10-12) is running well in the ad-hoc mode (managed mode
seems to work) but i can't use the master mode, because i can't get
hostapd running.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11-b  ESSID:"test"
            Mode:Master  Frequency:2.422GHz  Access Point:
            Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Tx-Power:-12 dBm   Sensitivity=1/3
            Retry limit:4   RTS thr:off

./hostapd wlan0:
ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX): No such device
ioctl[SIOCGIFFLAGS]: No such device
modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module wlan0ap	(syslog)
what does "ap" behind the wlan0 mean, i think the device is called wlan0
(modules.conf includes "alias wlan0 hostap_cs")?
