i think a need your help, because i spend too much time with the following problem :

i get latest version hostap from cvs, i upgrade and patch my kernel to new wireless extension API - now version of wireless.h is 15. Modules are compliled and loaded well, but problem is to set some private ioctl with iwpriv commnad - e.g. iwpriv maccmd. The answer is that device doesnt support this private ioctl.
Is this the problem of new hostap driver ? Or is thsi the problem of new wireless API ?
What should i do to solve this problem, i need to use MAC based ACL, Other features like 802.1x suppport work great..

Any help will be great for me..

full error :

iwpriv wlan0 maccmd 1
Interface doesn't accept private ioctl
maccmd (8Bf0) operation not supported

thank you
