Hi,

I have tried to get a new SENAO card with SSF working by following these 
steps:

It is a PCMCIA card with NIC 801d. It seems like I can initiate the PRI 
f/w, but the STA f/w does not upload due to incompability. When 
downloading the PRI f/w I get some ignored compatabilities causing 
default settings (see log), I don't know what this means but I suspect 
that it might have something to do with it. Both f/w files should be 
valid for my hardware. Any ideas?
