I am having a problem using firmware 1.7.4  I recently updated Linux on
my laptop, and the card worked fine previously.  I am currently using
the 2.6.12 kernel.  The card works fine with the wlan-ng drivers, but
not the HostAP drivers.  If I flash the firmware to 1.5.6 the driver
loads fine.

If there is any other information needed, let me know.  The card is a
smc2532w-b.

Thanks!
