I've created many access points with the hostap modules. I can't seem to get a client to associate to this here zaurus sl5500. Here's the basic testing lines...Oh, card is linksys wcf12.

ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid kava
iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
iwconfig wlan0 mode master
iwconfig wlan0 key off

ifconfig wlan0 && iwconfig wlan0

wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:41:DD:67:DE

Warning: Driver for device wlan0 recommend version 18 of Wireless Extension,
but has been compiled with version 16, therefore some driver features
may not be available...

Kismet on future client sees him, open and ready for clients...

Then on client I do, as always and has worked till the zaurus testing...

ifconfig wlan0 up
/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel 6 essid kava key off

dmesg is status disconnected line after line...

This has always worked till now, so there's a gotcha in here somewhere with the zaurus, any clues forum?

thanks again,
