Be careful, if your WMP11 is quite new (ver 2.7) it is _not_ a Prism card,
i had the same problem, i bought a WMP11, but now Linksys is using
Broadcom chipsets, which are NOT supported right now. I also have a PCMCIA
WPC11 card it is a prism card, think Linksys is only using Broadcom for
WMP11's

Look at Netgate www.netgate.com, they use Prism and they sell complete
Kits for setting up an AP.

If your card is a prism card, you should check if you have 1.4.2 firmware,
becase it is broken and does not work in AP mode.

If you require a firmware update use the links to the dlink/intersil
flasher (WinUpdate-0-5-1-0.exe), and the netgate firmware; Dave Wang point
me to this link:
http://lists.shmoo.com/pipermail/hostap/2002-October/000024.html

you can use that tool for checking the firmware your card actually has. if
it doesnt work, your card is not a prism card.

You can go ahead and hack your card to verify the Broadcom chip. Check the

I think WMP11 is in fact this card o a variant of this:
