hoptapd and prism54 problem

I'm a new hostapd user and I hope you can help me!
I'd like to carry out a WPA-PSK access point with TKIP encryption method.
I'm working with Debian, kernel 2.6.9, and I'm using a pci Artem WLAN Card
whose data sheet asserts to support this security solution.
Moreover, this card include the PrismGT/Duette chipset and, therefore, it
works fine with prism54 driver. I tested it. Unfortunately, the prism54
official site is down at the moment and, consequently, I cannot have any
support to know if and how I can use iwpriv private ioctls to get my task.
However, I downloaded the driver which should be support WPA-2
(the driver supporting only WPA-1 does not compile because the isl_ioctl.c
has a lot of simple mistake and so it does not seem reliable).
Besides, I downloaded and installed hostapd-0.3.9 which supports Prism54
driver. I run
It seems to work but it also prints
protocol 0300 is buggy, dev eth1
Actually, it does not work. In fact all clients get the connection with the
AP, without any key.
Can someone provide any suggestion?
Thanks in advance.
PS: In the following, my configuration files:
My .config file is:
# Driver interface for Prism54 driver
# WPA2/IEEE 802.11i RSN pre-authentication
# Integrated EAP authenticator
# EAP-PEAP for the integrated EAP authenticator
My hostapd configuration file is:
All the other parameters are commented.
Finally, my /etc/network/interfaces file is
iface eth1 inet static
post-up /etc/init.d/dhcp start
pre-down /etc/init.d/dacp stop
