Hi,

I am using debian 5.0.3 with 2 different kernels(2.6.26-2
distributed by debian and 2.6.28.9 vanila kernel) and hostapd v0.6.9.
My wifi card is a Senao NL-2511CD-PLUS-EXT2 .
I got the following errors are listed below( here are the full dmesg
outputs http://vvarga.r00tintheb0x.net/tmp/fail.txt
http://vvarga.r00tintheb0x.net/tmp/fail2.txt).

I tried to find the solution but I find posts from 5 years ago. 
All post are refer to driver error, that's why I tired a newer kernel,
so I compiled a 2.6.28.9 without any patches.

My access point is working correctly but sometimes I see some TX error,
and card reset error message, check the dmesg output.

2.6.26 dmesg output:
