Hi list,

I'm using FedoraCore3 with a Netgear MA311 wireless adapter. Adapter works
fine when I use default orinoco_pci module. It associates with AP, takes
IP address etc..
I recently downloaded hostap-0.2.6, and now I'm trying to use this driver
instead of orinoco module. I did every thing on README file; compiled it,
installed it, and load the module with #modprobe hostap_pci command. But I
could not be able to bring the interface up and took an IP address from
AP.
My AP do not use any kind of security mechanism, encription is of etc..
I googled around and find this mail-list. I will be happy [and able to
work with hostap driver] if someone helps me. It seems like an config
error, but I tried all the iwconfig[and iwlist to get more info about it]
params but nothing changed.
Thank you for your interest,

Best Regards.

Here is the dmesg output after I gave the command:
