Hello,

I use:

kernel 2.6.32-573.3.1.el6.x86_64 (Centos 6.7)
hostap_pci (Intersil Corporation ISL3874 [Prism 2.5]/ISL3872 [Prism 3])

..and everything seems to work, but...

1. My logs are nowadays full of
...
...
wifi0: detected fid change (try=0, reg=0044): 01b2 d6f5 01b2
wifi0: detected fid change (try=0, reg=0040): 0188 0269 0269
...
...

2. ifconfig wifi0 shows nowadays no TX packets

wifi0     Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-0E-6A-7A-XX-XX-XX-XX-
00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          TX packets:0 errors:3157 dropped:17 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
          Interrupt:25

3. /proc/net/hostap/wlan0 is nowadays /proc/net/hostap/wlan%d

The question is, is the hostap_pci unmaintained or just too old and I
should to switch to some newer/different hardware to get all those
things to work as they did in the past?
