Hi Brian,

Have tried Genesis mode but still no go:

# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
hostap_pci             66320  0 
hostap                138248  1 hostap_pci


# ./prism2_srec -g wlan0 ak010100.hex
srec summary for ak010100.hex
Component: 0x0015 1.1.0 (primary firmware)

ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No such device
Missing wlan component info
Could not read wlan RIDs


# ./prism2_srec -r wlan0 rf010803.hex
srec summary for rf010803.hex
Component: 0x001f 1.8.3 (station firmware)

ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No such device
Missing wlan component info
Could not read wlan RIDs


Seems like it's stuck with the "No such device"
error.... :'(
