Bingo, that worked link a charm!!

Although one glitch was that the Cisco Aironet 350 (ACU: 6.3.011, 
Driver: showed that a connection was not made (XP wireless 
network icon with red cross), inspite of successful pings between AP and 
STA.  Just to double check HTTP traffic also transfered successfully. 
So I suppose the mis-information is a problem specific to the Cisco 
card. Another card Conceptronic C54C (b/g) performed without this glitch.

Thanks for the help and the great work on hostap(d).
