I'm using a Broadcom card :

02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g 
Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

I'm using Broadcom driver and hostap driver from linux

I'm using the snapshot : hostapd-0.5-2006-09-04.tar.gz

When I run hostapd,I get the following error :

debian:/# /etc/init.d/hostapd start
Starting advanced IEEE 802.11 management: 
hostapdioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_PRISM2_PARAM]: Invalid argument
rmdir[ctrl_interface]: No such file or directory

Which version of hostapd should I use with linux ?
My wireless card is seen as eth1 instead of wlan0,is it normal ?
