I can tell you I had no luck with the Linksys WMP11 (firmware 1.4.2) and hostap_pci. I put in a D-Link DWL-520 (not the plus version) and all is well now.
I have the DWL-520 working in an older Dell P133 with Intel 430VX chipset that is supposedly PCI 2.1 compliant (not PCI 2.2) and the card works fine. I read somewhere that the DWL-520 won't work in a non-PCI 2.2 system, but it works for me.
Unfortunately it looks like D-Link discontinued the 520 and replaced it with the 520+ version - I don't know if the 520+ is a Prism-compatible chipset anymore - the specs on their website just talks about Texas Instruments DSP bla bla bla....
