most likely Cisco 350 won't work with hostap as well. just as i shared my encounters with some cards recently, with cisco 340 it didn't work becoz cisco cards uses their own proprietary firmware and mostly deny the "hfa384x_*" commands which are required by hostap to config the card to run as AP.
here's the list of cards i've tested, which i've sent out sometime ago...
Cards compatible to operate with HostAP:
