I have a WCF-12 linksys wireless card .. which has always been supported very well. However I'm having some troubles with it and pdaXrom ... not sure if it's the card, the hostap drivers, or me though

I'm using the iwconfig commands and kismet to scan for APs - sometimes it's fine, and other times it retruns strange ioctl errors -

CODE
FATAL: channel get ioctl failed 22: Invalid argument


also got this yesterday for the first time when using cardctl scheme

CODE
cardctl scheme any
checking: wlan0
changing scheme from 'airpwn' to 'any'
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A)  :
      SET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument
Error for wireless request "Set Power Manegement" (8B2D)  :
      GET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A)  :
      SET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
Some devices did not start cleanly




My unit has been in suspend since all this happened, and I was just able to both start kismet and use cardctl scheme to connect to my home network with no errors .. so I don't know why it acts up like that sometimes ... any clues? what am I doing wrong?


* note - this is all in the terminal itself - no X windows running
