Running hostap in a minimal linux distribution.

Date: 2002-07-15 10:25:12 UTC

First of all apologies for my bad englisch. Englisch is not my mother tongue.

Let me stat with describing my problem. I'm running 2 linux images on a computer.(trough lilo)
One is an embedded mode and the other is a normal environment. I've compiled my one kernel.
Which I use in both modes. In the normal mode I can get the hostap driver too work. Even as part of
a bridge, but i can't get it to work in the embedded mode. The module seems to load oke and my signal appears in NetStumbler with correct MAC and ESSID, but when I try to connect to the accespoint , I get a number of errors such as:

I use module hostap_pci.o for a DWL-520 (again it works fine in the normal mode) with the following line:

I try to set up my network as follows (no errormessages here) modprobe hostap_pci channel=7 essid=RGE iwmode=3 insmod bridge
brtctl addbr br0
brtctl addif br0 wlan0
brtctl addif br0 eth0
ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig br0 up

I run a dhcp server on br0 (same as in normal mode.) I think I miss a library or some settings. Which libraries do I need? Are there more settings beside modprobe parameters? (I compared the proc/ variables the look the same to me). Do I need something else to run hostap? What else can it be(cry out for help =) )
