1st post also and same problem :
- pentium 100 with 3c509 connected to cable modem + Netgear MA301/401 & fealnx eth card bridged for internal network. - debian testing, kernel 2.4.18, Prism2-2002-04-13

configured this way :
modprobe hostap_plx
iwconfig wlan0 mode Master
iwconfig wlan0 channel 6

using ipchains 1.3.10, 1-Sep-2000 (but was stable whan only using fealnx   eth card for my internal network).

it works for a little time then hangs totally the PC, I don't even have any debug message or information about the crash.

Second question : on the ap, when running wavemon, I've got false values for link quality, signal level, nois level, snr, bitrate. Is this normal ?

Many thanks
