I've been suffered by same problem with WPC11-firmware v1.4.2.
But I cannot find a later version(v1.4.9) neither in Linksys site nor Intersil site.
( Linksys site have only v1.4.2 as the latest one. )
Where can I find it?

STA 1.4.2 is widely known to be quite busted.  You need to upgrade or 
downgrade your firmware.  If you can't flash it, you can RAM upload 1.4.9.
