Everything is up, but ping does not work.

I have two DWL 500 cards, one in the linux box (RH 7.3) as AP, and another one in a Win 2000 computer as client.The W2K is installed with newest drivers and is in infrastructure mode. I use the hostap CVS snapshot as of 23.7. I'm using a custom compiled kernel with the actual RH kernel sources. The driver loads as follows:

hostap_cs: hostap_cs.c 0.0.0 2002-05-19 (SSH Communications Security Corp, Jouni Malinen)

hostap_cs: (c) SSH Communications Security Corp <jkm_at_ssh.com>
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (constant)
hostap_cs: setting Vcc=33 (from config)
CISTPL_MANFID: 0x0156, 0x0002

Lucent-based card
Checking CFTABLE_ENTRY 0x01 (default 0x01) IO window settings: cfg->io.nwin=1 dflt.io.nwin=1 io->flags = 0x0046, io.base=0x0000, len=64
hostap_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 11, io 0x0100-0x013f
hostap_cs: Registered netdevice wlan0
prism2_hw_config: initialized in 17696 iterations
wlan0: NIC: id=0x800c v1.0.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.0.7
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v1.3.5

wlan0: prism2_open
wlan0: authentication: 00:05:5d:5c:4e:52 len=6, auth_alg=0, auth_transaction=1, status_code=0, fc=0x00b0 wlan0: new STA 00:05:5d:5c:4e:52
wlan0: association request: from 00:05:5d:5c:4e:52 to 00:05:5d:5c:4d:9c len=19
  capability=0x0001, listen_interval=1 - new AID 1

So the other card is obviously visible to the linux node. My startup parameters:

module "hostap_cs" opts "essid=srthink channel=6"

here is what ifconfig states for the wlan card

wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:05:5D:5C:4D:9C
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:15 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:28 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
          RX bytes:1489 (1.4 Kb)  TX bytes:2587 (2.5 Kb)
          Interrupt:11 Base address:0x100

and the routing:

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface U 40 0 0 eth0 U 40 0 0 wlan0       U        40 0          0 lo         UG       40 0          0

I cannot find anything being wrong, but the card in the linux box after initializing blinks twice a second and I cannot send even a ping to the client and vice versa. I have no clues what could be wrong, someone with an idea?

Many thanks,
