Firmware

Hey there,

	I have a Netgear MA401. Similarly, I'm trying to get the 1.4.9 firmware
installed so I can use fw based WEP encryption. I tried writing that
image with "WinFlash/Winupdate" (I forget which is the precise name),
but it complains that the image was not meant for my type (NIC ID) ID
"8008" card. Am I just out of luck? Netgear only has 1.3.6 on their site
as the latest firmware. Is there perhaps another image somewhere that's
designed for this ID? Thanks in advance!
