no wireless extensions

I was able to compile and install the hostap_plx drivers on a 2.4.9 kernel (2.4.12 did not work)

I currently have an old pentium 200 machine (64 megs of ram) and a USRobotics usr20415 pcmcia->pci card.

'modprobe hostap_plx' is successful and returns:

PLX9052 PCI/PCMCIA adapter: mem=0xffbdf000, plx_io=0xfc80, irq=10, pccard_io=0xff00

hostap_plx: Registered netdevice wlan0
wlan0: NIC: id=0x8002 v1.1.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v0.3.0
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v0.8.3

however, when I run 'iwconfig wlan0' it returns: "wlan0: no wireless extensions"

of course, every other iwconfig command fails. What am I doing wrong?
