At least I were able to compile hostapd-0.4.6. and wpa_supplicant-0.4.6 
with kernel 2.6.14 and WE19 and
madwifi-ng (), but wpa_supplicant it still doesn't work.
With kernel 2.6.12 and madnwifi-ng it was the same.
wpa_supplicant cannot connect to hostapd. It "hangs" by scanning. Last

Have also tried to use with scan_ssid=1 but it's the same. It hangs ...
Any idea what's wrong?

Has anybody running wpa_supplicant with madwifi-ng?

wpa_supplicant-0.4.3 with old madwifi-bsd-driver works well to
hostapd-0.4.6 with madwifi-ns so the problem is really in wpa_supplicant.
I think there is something wrong with the ioctls in driver_madwifi.c.

Jouni  have you used already madwifi-ng???
