I have heard that some versions of hostap would only 'pass' odd or even length packets. I had first hand experience with Prism2-2002-5-16.tar.gz not allowing certain packets through.Turns out that the USB build was the only one worked correctly. I patched and then upgraded to 2002-5-19, been fine since. What version of hostap are you running?
