Only works if I use particular command line options.

And how exactly would that help with _protocol_ limitations?

What on earth does Lucent and hcf has to do with Intersil (well,
Conexant) Prism2? If you take a look at the driver, it does not use any
hcf library and has direct access to whatever the firmware is providing.
Furthermore, this thread was actually about an Atheros card..

WDS link is the only way to do layer two bridging for non-access point
device in IEEE 802.11 network. If it is enough to do somewhat similar
functionality on higher level (IP routing with Proxy ARP, etc.), that
can of course be done on top of more or less any IP connection.
