Sorry, you are right about that.
W´ll post the versions of my software:

Wavemon: 0.4.0b
Pcmcia-CS: 3.2.4
Hostap: 0.0.0 CVS, 4/29/03, compiled as modules including pcmcia path in
Kernel: 2.4.20, compiled by me. If you need it, I can send you the .config.
Wireless Extensions: 15
Wireless Tools: 25

Am I forgotting anything?

[root at brain root]# iwconfig --version
iwconfig  Version 25
          Compatible with Wireless Extension v15 or earlier,
          Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v15.

wlan0     Recommend Wireless Extension v13 or later,
          Currently compiled with Wireless Extension v15.

It seems to me that the version of wireless extensions should be OK for this
card, but you tell me, please.

OK, I don´t care about WEP or WDS for now, but I will have this in mind,

I will re-paste the errors I receive in dmesg, just in case.
There are some errors that I don´t what what they mean, as:

"cs: warning: no high memory space available!"
"cs: unable to map card memory!"
