Yes, I also have 1.3.4 working fine in Host AP mode (both in a PC Card and in a native PCI card). However, one should note that PRI 1.0.5 and STA 1.3.4 have some PCI bus related bugs that cause packet corruption. These are quite noticeable when comparing amount of corrupted packets between 1.0.5/1.3.4 and 1.0.7/1.3.5 (which has the fixes).

Anyway, even though couple of versions of STA 1.3.4 work in Host AP mode, it might be possible that there are some odd problems with another NIC/PRI combination or something.
