Ok, if You use hostAP you should have WiFi card that allows to run in AP
mode - most of new cards have it. But when hostAP was written, only
couple chipsets have ability to run in AP. If You cannot run on RT/RA
link card with hostAP, there is some probability, that this card is not
supported with hostAP packege. I've having RT/RaLink card on PCMCIA but,
this card can run in AP mode under windows only with WINDOWS DRIVERS.
Simple: hostap is not packege for Your card.
PS: ndiswrapper allso don't work.
