You need a driver which enables the AP mode of the card.  HostAP does this
for Prism cards.  Once you have a driver loaded into the kernel which can
communicate with your hardware, you can use the Wireless Extensions to
control the behavior of the driver (e.g. iwconfig wlan0 mode master
etc...).

For a list of drivers see:
