Hi, I'm trying to run hostap with the D-link dwl-520 revE1 PCI wireless NIC, 
but I have problems with the firmware I think.I followed the instructions in 
Andrew Barr's "Using the DWL-520 rev. E1 with HostAP" web page but when I 
download the firmware to the wireless NIC an error appears. 
 
# prism2_srec -r wlan0 /etc/firmware/pm010102.hex /etc/firmware/rf010800.hex 
srec summary for 
pm010102.hexIncluded file name: PM010102.HEX 
Component: 0x0015 1.1.2 (primary firmware) 
 
srec summary for rf010800.hex 
Included file name: RF010800.hex 
Component: 0x001f 1.8.0 (station firmware) 
 
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available 
STAID not available (maybe running PRI-only) 
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available 
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available 
Could not read wlan PDA. This requires PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT definition in 
driver/module/hostap_config.h. 
---------------- 
I don't know why this error, I compiled the driver with 
PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT. 
Maybe this firmware files are not the apropiate for my card. How can i find 
out which firmware is for mi card? 
I don't want to download the firmware to the flash (non-volatile), I want to 
do it to the RAM (volatile). 
Please, I need help with this problem. 
Thanks a lot.
