IEEE 802.11-DS and IEEE 802.11b

Hi to everybody.
I'm programming a script (executed in the hostap) which obtains the
channel whith less interferences from other AP's. After this scan, the
HostAP changes to mode master and starts working in this channel.
Everything works correctly when the output of a "iwconfig" command shows
something like that:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11b mode: ....
But sometimes, this output changes to IEEE 802.11-DS and then nothing
works correctly. When this occurs, the card doesn't accept "iwpriv" or
most "iwconfig" commands. A solution is restart the card (another time I
see IEEE 802.11b in the output) but obviously this is not the best way
because clients connected to hostAP will loose their connection.
Anybody can tell me why the card changes to IEEE 802.11-DS ?? What does
it mean ??
Thanks in advance and sorry if my English is quite poor :(
