Chipset for hostap_cs

I have been looking for RAM uploadable firmware for Prism 2 cards in order
to get them to support 4 address WDS. I have 1.5.6 RAM uploadable for 2.5
chipsets but I cannot seem to get any Prism 2 cards to support 4 address

Is there a FW version that can be RAM uploaded to Prism 2 cards which will
support 4 address WDS? If so could you or someone mention the HEX file name
that works? I know you cannot provide the FW but I have my own collection
and I just need to know which version/file will work for a Prism 2 card.

Thanks for any assistance!
