I think I know what your problem is as it bit me as well when I first
starting playing with this. Linux includes a binary version of iwconfig.
This version is old and needs to be replaced by the one that you built
yourself. Do a 'which iwconfig' to find out which one your are using. Make
a backup copy of this and then replace that copy with your own built one.
This will fix your problem.

There is something off with my wireless extensions. First question, are the
wireless extensions included in the kernels now? If so, how is it that a
2.4.19 kernel has an "ancient" version of wireless extensions?
I just rebuilt my kernel with success this time on my laptop. I then
pcmcia-cs-3.1.30 and hostap-2002-10-12.
The output of "iwconfig --version" is
with a note about being built using wireless extensions v13
Where do the wireless extensions reside? Is the hostap-2002-10-12 driver so
far behind wrt wireless extensions?
