I tried it update the primary and station firmware in my Netgear MA401 and 
appear to have screwed it up.

It started out with

	NICID: 0x800c: v1.0.0
	PRID: 0x0015: v1.0.7
	STAID: 0x001f: v1.3.6

I ran

	# prism2_srec -v wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

and although it wittered with a few

	PDR ... not found from wlan card PDA. Using default data.

it said OK at the end. So I ran

	# prism2_srec -v -f wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

but this stopped with

Components after download:
  NICID: 0x800c: v1.0.0
  PRIID: 0x0015: v1.1.1
ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: No data available

What do I do now? Have I permanently broken it?
