HostAP defaults to ESSID "Test"

Ive installed the hostap driver and have a Redhat 7.3 laptop working as an access point. The pccard is a linksys wpc11 v3, No matter what it says in the ifcfg-wlan0 file or wireless.opts file my card still defaults to its own settings. the essid always shows up as test, which I assume is the default. The access point and firewall on the laptop work and I can surf through it, but the access point always defaults to essid test. Has anyone else experienced this or am I missing something simple?
