         hy,
 
 since I try to update from my old 2.4.19 with hostap to a newer Version 
 I get much trouble.
 
 I have try 2.4.21-rc6 + hostap 0.0.3 and an new WOLK (
 http://wolk.sourceforge.net)
 
 I can not find any errors in the log files. I have  here an Debian
 Sarge.
 
 The wireless Card is an : 
 
 00:13.0 Network controller: National Datacomm Corp: Unknown device 0131
 (rev 01) 
 
 It runs with the plx driver.
 
 The Interrupts seems to be O.K. :
 
 cat /proc/interrupts 
            CPU0

 The client is an prism2 card (Dlink 650) with wlan_ng driver. The client
 has run with the old modules an 2.4.19 without problems. Now I get an
 error like these :

 Output from  hostap_diag is attached.
 
 
 Now my knowledge ends. Can you help me ? 
 
 
         thx
