essid of firmware-based hostap (ver. 5/19)

It works by using f/w based hostap (ver. 5/19). The connection seems ok, but I cannot set essid by iwconfig.
(iwconfig wlan0 key/channel is ok, while everytime I type 'iwconfig wlan0
essid XXXX' will cause:
SIOCSIWESSID: Invalid argument )

(my steps:

 modprobe -v hostap_pci
 ...... setup bridge.......
prism2_srec -vr wlan0 3842XXX.hex)

Or something missed in the steps?

Thanks in advance for any comment.
