DWL-520 trouble

Using hostap-driver 0.2.0 or 0.2.3 and hostap-utils 0.2.1 in both
cases, modprobe hostap_pci would render the machine unusable
(non-pingable, nothing works). All it outputs is this (typed by hand):

hostap_pci: 0.2.0 - 2004-02-15 (Jouni Malinen <email>)
hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wifi0

modprobing it with -v didn't give much information other than two
insmod lines (hostap and hostap_pci). /var/log/messages doesn't have
much stuff other than the above 2 lines.

Kernel is 2.6.7-ck1, lspci -v shows this for my card:

0000:01:06.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Prism 2.5
wavelan chipset (rev 01)
   subsystem: D-Link System Inc DWL-520 Wireless PCI Adapter, Rev E1
   Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 19
   Memory at dc000000 (32-bit, prefetchable)
   Capabilities: [dc] Power management version 2

Any help would be really appreciated.
