I've got a
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0: Cabletron, RoamAbout 802.11 DS, Version 01.01
wi0: 802.11 address 00:e0:63:50:29:ab
wi0: using Lucent Technologies, WaveLAN/IEEE
wi0: Lucent Firmware: Station (6.0.1)
wi0: supported rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps

This is obviously a completely different version number space -- is there
any hope to get that thing into hostap mode?
(or a compatible ad-hoc mode, as last resort)

best regards
