I use different cards:
Linksys WPC54G-DE (broadcom)
Dell TrueMobile 1150 (lucent 802.11b)
Centrino (Intel stuff)
All with the same error. It seams not to be a hardware related problem.
The problem is the EAPOL-State machine implemented in Windows XP.
hostap (latest development cvs) runs on Prism2.5 MiniPCI with:
primary firmware: 1.1.1
secondary firmware: 1.7.4
