Hi all,

I'm trying to get hostapd (v 0.4.3) working with prism54 driver (tried
version from kernel 2.6.12.1 and latest svn version) :

My card seems to be ok :
[root at cocsi ~]# ifconfig eth1
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:90:4B:DE:6C:93 
          inet addr:192.168.1.1  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

[root at cocsi ~]# dmesg | grep eth1
eth1: resetting device...
eth1: uploading firmware...
eth1: firmware version: 1.0.4.3

Trying WPA-PSK with this hostapd.conf :
[root at cocsi ~]# more /etc/hostapd.conf
interface=eth1
driver=prism54
ssid=beavis
macaddr_acl=0
debug=4
accept_mac_file=/etc/hostapd.accept
deny_mac_file=/etc/hostapd.deny
auth_algs=1
own_ip_addr=192.168.1.1
wpa=1
wpa_passphrase=secret-password-blah
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP CCMP

all i get is this:
[root at cocsi ~]# hostapd /etc/hostapd.conf
Configuration file: /etc/hostapd.conf
Opening raw packet socket for ifindex 3
ioctl(SIOCGIFINDEX): No such device
prism54 driver initialization failed.


Thanks for help and sorry for my bad english,

Laurent
