Now i have a netgear ma311 pci-card. When i try to setup it in hostap 
i get the following error message:
ifconfig: unknown IEEE802.11 media option: hostap
I read already that many people run it in hostap mode, so i wonder why 
i can't?
Here is output from lspci
00:0e.0 Network controller: Intersil Corporation Prism 2.5 Wavelan 
chipset (rev 01)
and from dmesg:
