I have a problem configuring D-Link DWL520 card with hostap 

1) fragmentation patameter does not change:
 
 			# iwconfig wlan0 frag fixed
 			# iwconfig wlan0
 			wlan0   IEEE 802.11-b  ESSID:"test"  Nickname:"red1"
 			          Mode:Master  Frequency:2.422GHz  Access Point: 00:05:5D:FA:16:35  
> 			          Bit Rate:11Mb/s   Tx-Power=-13 dBm   Sensitivity=1/3  
> 			          Retry limit:15   RTS thr=200 B   Fragment thr:off
> 			          
> 			# iwconfig wlan0 frag 512
> 			# iwconfig wlan0

> 			          Retry limit:15   RTS thr=200 B   Fragment thr:off

 2) does the card supports power timeout and period at the same time?
				    I know that most cards don't...

3) Setting of power management timeout - the value being displayed is different from the      value that was set (is there a limit of some sort?)
