I would just like to add that I also tried the kernel in edgy I used the generic one in my previous post and the same problem exists. I would like to have this fixed mainly so that I can use both my wireless cards. In addition, it includes information about which cards are Prism2-based and can thus be used in Host AP mode. My T30’s built-in minipci orinoco card can connect to my accesspoint with hostap. I don’t know yet how to write a patch but this is what I did:. Is there anything I can do to help. This fix should work for me and for Pascal but I don’t know if it will for others.

Oinux would be helpful to have this fixed upstream so that users of this card have the advantage of being able to use hostap drivers and the prism2 wireless access point facility.
Intersil’s station firmware for Prism2 chipset supports a so called Host AP mode in which the firmware takes care of time critical tasks like beacon sending and frame acknowledging, but pris,2 other management tasks to host computer driver.

The initial report is in regards to the pcmcia hostap drivers not working at all which is the problem I am having. Please, note that you will need quite recent version of Wireless Tools to use some features of the Host AP driver. My T30’s built-in minipci orinoco card can connect to my accesspoint with hostap. It seems that during boot a ifrename is tried invoked, but it fails. Station name “Prism I” [ Surely after such a length of time the launchpad janitor should be closing these old bugs due to dis-interest?
I have on orinoco usb card which I use most of the time. Ben Collins ben-collins on I’m using whatever linux-generic pulls in. Still, thanks for looking liunx this Colin. The hermes based cards are incompatible with the hostap driver and hence the patch to detect cards with “Intersil” in it only.
It thinks it can handle my hardware, but it can’t. Was that supposed to happen? It needs to have the drivers compiled manually from CVS but they conflict with the built in kernel pgism2 drivers.

You are not directly subscribed to this bug’s notifications. I really jumped the gun on my response. Unfortunately it seems this bug is still an issue.

Get Involved Report a bug Ask a question. I am wondering whether it is something to do with the new upstart init system or a kernel IRQ allocation problem.
My wifi card worked well with the hostap drivers in dapper. I tried each module parameter in turn. Perhaps the bug is still present for prism 1?
