and now - me too. The problem seems to have been that CONFIG_NET_RADIO was 
undefined in my kernel config for 2.4.21. After enabling it immediately 
worked again with wireless-tools-26-1. This option was obviously not 
obligatory for 2.4.20.

BTW: hostap-0.0.3 gives more than 3 times the performance than orinoco-0.13d 
on my NetGear MA401, from 180kByte/s up to 560kByte/s. Maybe it's the old 
1.3.6 Intersil-firmware causing this.


P.S.: .. and actually I found the pcmcia-cs 3.2.5 pre-releases.
