You may not have support compiled into the kernel..
You may not be running the commands from root..
tonjaa@tonjaa:~/ < root?

to mount/umount a kernel module -- you need root.

1. Unpack source code of WPA supplicant:
tar -zxvf wpa_supplicant-0.3.8.tar.gz
cd wpa_supplicant-0.3.8

2. Create .config file:
cp defconfig .config

3. Edit .config file, uncomment the following line:
#CONFIG_DRIVER_IPW=y.

4. Build WPA supplicant:
make

-- you said you wanted to make it an 'access point' ?
you need to cd /usr/src/linux-2.x.x.x
ls -la | grep .config
if that's a good config
cp .config ../
make mrproper && make distclean
cp ../.config $PWD

make oldconfig && make menuconfig

-> Device Drivers -> Network Device Support ->
look around.. you May find your driver or generic support : )
'Wireless LAN support'.. might be worth doing this

I have an Asus Mobo M2N32 Deluxe (wireless edition). When I purchased it I thought I could get the wifi working with Linux. It works like an access point, which I thought would be an interesting edition to my home network. I tried the 8187 driver (sorry, don't remember which one, but was never able to get it working properly. The disk that comes with the motherboard contains drivers, which I tried with ndiswrapper. I tried many 8187 drivers when using Debian and still didn't have luck. Maybe the Asus forums could help, but I think a Linux driver for this dongle is not available. Below is the info for the chip:

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:8187 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187 Wireless Adapter

If anyone has any luck finding a driver that works with this, please let me know, I'd be happy to try it out.

on Ubuntu i try to install ndiswrapper by command
sudo apt-get install ndisgtk
and i find driver windows .inf for Realtek RTL8187 at first time
i think it's PCI type but i wrong. i find on web
http://rtl8180-sa2400.sourceforge.net/ it's tell spec is USB.
and i find driver from web
http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/RealTek.html
then i add driver from windows wireless driver it's can use
in ad-hoc mode but it not have access point mode for choose .
i think it's ok . even through it's not good same use program on
windows i hope next time Linux can use all program from windows
