>From http://home.columbus.rr.com/andrewbarr/dwl520e1.html :
There are two firmware files, a primary firmware file and a secondary, or 
station, firmware file. The station firmware is located in an archive with its 
version name, such as 1.8.0.tar.gz. All primary firmware files are located in 
primary.tar.gz. There are different files in the archives, presumably for 
different types of cards, but the files that worked for me were: 

8a0d97de764ff1d1b20c96ff41e09dd2 pm010102.hex (Available in primary.tar.gz)
83b34a7d182eb2f9f0d12b587be4587c rf010800.hex (Available in 1.8.0.tar.gz)

But I tryed with the files in the 1.7.4 firmware and it started working.

# prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /etc/firmware/pm010102.hex   (for the primary)
# prism2_srec -rp wlan0 /etc/firmware/rf010704.hex   (for the Station)

So I'm running an AP on my linux!!!!
In the next time I will asking for 802.1x Authentication...
