yes you need to have a configuration block in the
/etc/pcmcia/hostap_cs.conf file, so that at boot time the pcmcia module
knows to bind to the hostap driver.
My config block for my RangeLAN-DS look like:
card "Proxim RangeLAN"
version "PROXIM", "RangeLAN-DS/LAN PC CARD"
manfid 0x0126, 0x8000
In order to find the version & manfid above you can type on a root shell
Also, don't forget to add an alias line to the /etc/modules.conf file
alias wlan0 hostap_cs
Hope that helps
