Firmware

I've got a Prism 2.5 card reporting NIC 0x800c. It has no brand, the
external aspect is much like the Engenius Senao NL2511CD+ext2 but
nothing is marked on it.

when I use it in windows with Windows-2.0.9 driver package from
Intersil, it reports STA 1.5.6 (that means that the windows driver is
able to load the 1.5.6 fw in ram, isn't it ?).

I got images contained in the windows packages and when trying them with
prism2_srec in Linux, the one that recognises my NIC gives the next
result :

Any ideas ?
