Broken on both Qube 2(mips) and i386.
Mini-PCI PRISM 2.5 based card works OK everywhere except when in HOSTAP mode and you set a WEP key. The stations still associate but no mac activity is observed.
I didn't see any obvious differences between the ISL3873 PCMCIA MAC and the ISL3874 PCI MAC.
Try to set up a mini-PCI Prism 2.5 card in HOSTAP mode with a WEP key.
