Severe problem during download of Firmware makes PCI card useless

I tried to upgrade the firmware of my Prism V2.5 PCI based card (Allnet 
191), because the firmware on the card seemed to be rather old. (V 1.3.5).

I tried to follow the instruction in  Jun Sun's mini howto.
(http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/) very closely.
After having tried the dry run as suggested (Even if I didn't understand
every message of this dry run I saw the OK at the very end, so I thought 
it was OK.) I ran the real command as you can see from the log and kept 
fingers crossed a suggested. Unfortunately after having started smoothly 
the download aborted as can be seen from the attached logs!

This was the worst case because afterwards the card was useless. It was
not possible to load the driver  under Linux and a tried even under W2k
and failed as well. So now I have the situation, that I need help to
reflash the card, because I can't use it anymore!

Can somebody help? I would also be interested whether there is a place
where I could send the card to get it reflashed. Diffferent suggetions?
Every hint would be greatly appreciated!

Regards Ingo
