Yes, I did not modify to driver, I used the one provided with kernel-2.6.20

I compiled the driver and tested it with kernel- and
I've attached the logfile from wpa_supplicant and iwevent, and an iwevent output
when using p54 (SOFTMAC driver) as reference, too. The logfiles show only a
short time, but I did some further test (one about 10mins) with the same output,
too. But I did never get a connection, for this Mail I'm using the p54 one...

I attached the wpa_supplicant.conf, too. (I think the options "ssid, key_mgmt,
proto and psk" must be set, too don't they?)

If there are important infos missing or if I could test something new, let me
know, I'm still looking forward to get the prism54 one working, too ;-)
