Wvlan_cs is obsolete. I'd try another driver. I have a Dell Inspiron 4100
with a Dell Truemobile 1150 (Orinoco) mini-PCI card in it, and I've had
very good results with the Orinoco driver suite. Formerly I tried an
Ad-Hoc (not demo) network where the partner was a Linksys Prism-II card,
which Orinoco also supports. I had so much trouble and wierd behavior,
mostly blamed on the Prism-II, that I broke down and bought an access
point, and since then I've had no problems with the Dell 1150 NIC.
There's been a lot of effort put into making Orinoco work well on ARM-tye
machines, which I assume the HP iPaq is.
People also mention hostap as a good general purpose driver (in addition to
the access point emulation), but I've never used it.
