Hy

After browsing the archives and googling a bit, i managed to upgrade the 
station firmware to 1.4.9 and then with prism2_srec to 1.5.6, but i'd 
like to use firmware 1.6.3 to be able to hide my SSID from the beacons.

I know that hiding the SSID doesn't inprove much security, but i expect 
to use my wlan on limited hours and i don't want the SSID broadcasted 24x7.

Another thing that i would like to upgrade is the primary firmware, does 
anyone know where i can find it for this old NIC (to the curious is a US 
Robotics 2410).

wlan0: NIC: id=0x8002 v1.0.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v0.3.0

Thanks

Jose Araujo
