From http://m0n0.ch/wall/#notes :
wireless cards: only wireless cards that work with the wi or an driver are
supported. For hostap, you need a card based on the PRISM-II or -2.5
chipset. Cards that have been tested include D-Link DWL-520 (PCI), Senao
NL-2511CD Plus EXT2, Cisco Aironet AIR-PCM352 and Z-Com XI-815 (CF card in
-> Lucent cards do not use the PRISM chipset, therefore they do not
support hostap mode (just the fact that they use FreeBSD's wi driver
doesn't mean anything - e.g. Symbol cards can't do hostap, either).
