I've got some Senao SL-2011CD card, and HostAP driver loads fine.
However, I am confused with firwmare versions/revisions.
I have managed to flash STA firmware to version 1.4.9. But primary
firmware is 0.3.0, which seems old, since other cards I've had used 1.0.0
or newer. I wanted to try to update primary firmware file, but I am not
sure which one I need.
hostap driver loads ok:
Nov 24 15:01:35 amber cardmgr: socket 0: Senao
Nov 24 15:01:35 amber kernel: hostap_cs: 0.2.5 - 2004-10-03 (Jouni Malinen

Nov 24 15:01:35 amber kernel: hostap_cs: Registered netdevice wifi0
Nov 24 15:01:35 amber kernel: hostap_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 10, io
This is what hostap_diag shows:
NICID: id=0x8003 v1.0.0 (HWB3163 Rev B, Samsung PC Card Rev. B)
PRIID: id=0x0015 v0.3.0
STAID: id=0x001f v1.4.9 (station firmware)
I've taken various primary fw files (from
www.red-bean.com/proski/~firmware/), and tried prism2_srec with most of
The only one which didn't report error ("Incompatible update data") was
However, it seems to be 0.3.0, which I already have.
Is it possible to somehow update primary firwmare to newer version, since
none of the other files would be accepted by prism2_srec?
How much does primary firmware version matter for the functionality of the
Prism 2.5 card?
