Does hostapd support remote logging of Open and WEP wirelessevents?

I guess you got the problem,

When I configure my network file to run wireless in WPA mode then my 

root at OpenWrt:/$ps | grep hostapd  
1223 root        384 S   hostapd -B /var/run/hostapd-ath0.conf
1226 root        312 S   grep hostapd

But, when I configure my network file to run wireless in WEP or OPEN
mode then

root at OpenWrt:/$ ps | grep hostapd
1325 root        312 S   grep hostapd

Is there a way to enable hostapd for WEP and OPEN mode, If yes, How(Do I
have to edit hostapd.conf file)?

Thanks,
Sharad.

Are you sure hostapd is running when open or WEP modes are used? madwifi
is often used with hostapd only when IEEE 802.1X or WPA authentication
is needed.
