Thanks for the reply. I'm sure that part of the problem is my lack of
understanding of the detection and iwconfig/ifconfig process.
After booting, I insert the card and iwconfig does not list wlan0 as I
expected (I assumed this must occur before I can ifconfig). Ifconfig -a
does list wlan0 but with no ip address.
Someone suggested that I do:
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
And then I did
ifconfig wlan0 192.168.0.45
both completed without error, but clearly something is wrong because
iwconfig reports the access point as 44:44:44:44:44:44. (but ifconfig
reports 966 RX packets!)
The only other problem I notice is that if I eject the card I get:
hostap_cs: release postponed wlan0 still locked
and I can't reinsert the card :
requestID : resource in use

What happens if you use ifconfig to give wlan0 an IP?
If it loaded successfully you ought to be able to run ifconfig -a and see
interface even without an IP.
