Hi. I just installed Netgear PCI MA311 and works perfectly as a client 
to my AirPort (albeit no wep yet but use mac addresses for now).  Now I 
am trying to setup as an Access Point.  Following problems happen after 
I compile hostap:

# /sbin/modprobe hostap_pci
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/net/hostap_pci.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, 
including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
       You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/net/hostap_pci.o: insmod 
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/net/hostap_pci.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/net/hostap_pci.o: insmod hostap_pci failed

# dmesg
hostap_pci: 0.0.2 - 2003-05-03 (Jouni Malinen <jkmaline at>)
hostap_pci: No devices found, driver not installed.
hostap_crypt: unregistered algorithm 'NULL' (deinit)

Please help.
