Have you checked whether hostapd reports any errors when you run it with
full debugging (add '-ddd' to the command line)? IP routing is not used
for these frames and hostapd debug logs should show whether it received
Access-Challenge (and whether it passed all verifications). In addition,
logs should show if the frame was sent (or at least attempted) to the
station.
