One can update also the primary firmware to v.1.1.1. When updating, update primary
and station firmware simultaneously. After update the prism2.5 card looks like:

NICID: id=0x8013 v1.0.0 (PRISM II (2.5) Mini-PCI (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.1
STAID: id=0x001f v1.7.4 (station firmware)
