Hi:
I read your replay again, and I found .....
Maybe you misunderstand my problem, or I make the wrong statement about it
:-)
Actually, I want to know one thing, based on your description, whether you
can successfully use your WG511T with hostapd to act as AP (authenticator).
And then you can use another wlan card (a supplicant) to connect the AP that
you just set up using WPA-PSK.

 DLink604T is not required in this dicussion.
