I don't think your problems with be discussed seriously until you upgrade.

Please give links when referring to documentation.  See Mini-howto on
Flashing Intersil Prism Chipsets:

There is no word "chart" in that howto.  Instead of compatibility charts,
use prism2_srec without "-r" or "-f" and it will tell you if the firmware
is compatible.
