I wonder if the problem might not be with hostap but with your routing table.
In the DHCP mini howto it says this:
Next step is to add route for 255.255.255.255. Quoted from DHCPd README:
"In order for dhcpd to work correctly with picky DHCP clients (e.g., Windows
95), it must be able to send packets with an IP destination address of
255.255.255.255. Unfortunately, Linux insists on changing 255.255.255.255
into the local subnet broadcast address (here, that's 126.96.36.199). This
results in a DHCP protocol violation, and while many DHCP clients don't
notice the problem, some (e.g., all Microsoft DHCP clients) do. Clients that
have this problem will appear not to see DHCPOFFER messages from the server."
Type: route add -host 255.255.255.255 dev eth0
Did you do this??? I don't have MS Xtra Pricey on any of my machines but I do
have one that has 98 on it and I needed to add this so it could get an ip
from my dhcp server thats on the hostap machine.
I haven't read all the posts about your problem so if this was covered sorry
for taking up bandwidth.
