Yes.  Sender info (going to HospAP_wlan0) with the IP I tried to ping.
The IP shows what I pinged, the MAC address is 00:00:00:00:00

On the HostAP box right?
It shows the MAC address of the PCI card plugged in, it's real, you'll
pardon me for not wanting to post it on a publically archived list.  :)

The driver & software that came with the PCMCIA card *DOES* show me the
MAC address of the HospAP_wlan0 when looking at  it's GUI.  It doesn't
seem that this is making it to windows newtworking.
