Maybe I can help... I upgraded my motherboard this evening to a dual
PII and the box started hanging. I upgraded hostap to 0.0.2 and the
machine no longer freezes, but the hostap driver does, requiring a 
reboot to clear.

I get this in the logs:

May  4 19:30:06 enriqueto kernel: hostap_pci: wlan0: resetting card
May  4 19:32:04 enriqueto kernel: hostap_pci: wlan0: resetting card
May  4 19:33:26 enriqueto last message repeated 3 times

I went back to 0.0.1 and a non-smp kernel and the problems are

Card is a DLINK-DWL-520 flashed to 1.4.9 and using 1.5.6 via ram download.
