I don't know if you can set up the ZoomAir cards as an access point.
Certainly the Lucent/Buffalo (Hermes) cards I've used don't have access
point capability under Linux as I don't think Lucent ever released the
specs on how to get the cards into AP mode.

Lots of the /proc/net/wireless stats only make sense if you are talking to
a single access point. If you are in one of the ad-hoc modes then they
don't record any stats.
