Try the hostap pacakges. There is hostapd (an authentication deamon),
hostap-utils (utilities for hostap) and hostap-source (the kernel
driver). You also need to install pcmcia-source. Then use make-kpkg
modules_install to build the install deb against your kernel and install
the hostap....deb file.
