First of all, the hostap driver uses the wlan# interface names rather than
eth#. So the following should get you going:
ifconfig wlan0 aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd up
Or the ewivalent in your distribution's netwrk configuation files. You will
of course want to set your mode, ssid, etc. with iwconfig as well just as you
may have done before with the orinoco driver.
