Yes it seems so.

Could it be that you card lacks the firmware image in its flash memory
and it should be loaded when the card is initialized? See:
bool "Support downloading firmware images with Host AP driver"
depends on HOSTAP
Configure Host AP driver to include support for firmware image
download. This option by itself only enables downloading to the
volatile memory, i.e. the card RAM. This option is required to
support cards that don't have firmware in flash, such as D-Link
DWL-520 rev E and D-Link DWL-650 rev P.
Firmware image downloading needs a user space tool, prism2_srec.
It is available from http://hostap.epitest.fi/.
I don't know if the firmware can be loaded via kernel firmware
downloading system by just copy the correct firmware images to
/lib/firmware or equivalent directory. Or is the prism2_srec tool really
You can try with pm010102.hex and rf010704.hex firmware files from

The old system (pcmcia-cs) reads the hostap_cs.conf file, but not the
new system (pcmciautils). The same info is build inside the hostap_cs
module itself. I think the old and new system can't coexist simultaneously.
