I'm having some issues trying to use HostAP on a Powerbook G4; running
Debian Sid, with 2.6.7 kernel (main kernel tree, not benh). I've
patched the kernel with the latest HostAP driver, and everything
compiles and installs fine.
Using an Orinoco card, everything seems to work okay, but I prefer the
HostAP driver. Using HostAP, there's some strange issues; the driver
installs fine and sees the card, I can set the card to Master mode and
use it like that without any issues, but it won't work properly in
Managed mode will set fine, but I can't set an essid - it remains blank
(iwconfig wlan0 essid networkname). As a result it won't associate to
any networks. The same driver/kernel compiled on an x86 machine works
perfectly with the same card.
