i think hostap just repeat received packet, bud don't decrypt it and encrypt with new key, you need to do IP routing on AP..

  Hi, 
  I am using hostap driver on my Access Point as well as on my end stations. 

  I have 2 end stations associated with my Access Point. The 2 end stations 
  are able to communicate with each other through the Access Point. 

  I) Now I'm trying to use WEP (One common key for all stations of the AP). The 
  configuration I did as follows 

      AP 
      "iwconfig wlan0 key s:abcde" 

      STA 1 
      "iwconfig wlan0 key s:abcde" 

      STA 2. 
      "iwconfig wlan0 key s:abcde" 
  With this setup also the end stations 
  are able to communicate with each other through the Access Point. 

  II) Now I'm trying to use Station specific WEP keys (Different key for each end stations of the AP). The 
  configuration I did as follows 

      AP 
      1) For STA 1 
          "hostap_crypt_conf wlan0 00:11:22:33:44:55 WEP s:abcde" 
      2) For STA 2 
          "hostap_crypt_conf wlan0 00:66:77:88:99:00 WEP s:ghijkl" 
    

      STA 1 
      "iwconfig wlan0 key s:abcde" 

      STA 2. 
      "iwconfig wlan0 key s:ghijkl" 

  With this setup the end stations are able to communicate with AP but 
  they are not able to communicate with each other through the Access Point. 

  Can any one help me in identifying whats going wrong here OR the 
  hostap driver does not support this feature. 

  any help here is greatly appreciated 

  thanks all your time 

  regards, 
  Dilli Babu
