I still don't know what card this is or what driver it is using. I'm not
aware of any driver called 'Airport'. If it Hermes II -based card like
some of the threads seem to indicate, you would need to use another
driver interface in wpa_supplicant. This interface code is not under
compatible license, so it is not included in the wpa_supplicant releases
nor do I do any testing on it, so you would need to ask someone else for
help with that. This is of course assuming, that you are indeed using
the Agere driver.
