Here is your problem, firmware version of "Station 1.04.02" is known be unable to be used in HostAP mode due to it not answering /sending beacons (or something like that).

You'll have to upgrade the firmware of the card. Refer to previous posts in the list archive with "STA:1.4.x" in the subject line.
