no, not at all. the ricoh bridge acts as a full pcmcia bridge. that means you can use the DWL500 with hostap_cs.o just like a regular card in a notebook. it is even hot-pluggable.

works fine for me, altough i have some of the 'usual' problems (on a uni-processor machine):

the 'stable' driver causes 'resetting card [..] res=-110' under heavy traffic load, and the cvs version gives me the kernel oops (others on the list reported). but it works like a charm using the cvs version from '1 month ago' ..

good luck,
