Would your recommendation accurately describe (genesis mode) the
following steps?

# prism2_srec -gs wlan0 ak010104.hex rf010704.hex  (SAFE to perform no matter what)
# hostap_diag wlan0				   (should include new PRIID and STAID)

# REINSERTING THE CARD SHOULD RESET IT

# cardctl eject 0
# cardctl insert 0
# hostap_diag wlan0				    (should show old PRIID and STAID)
# `prism2_srec -v -f ak010104.hex rf010704.hex` iff (step1 returned OK)

Also what version of station firmware would you recommend upgrading to?
1.7.4 vs 1.8.0?

What are the differences?
Does 1.8.0 hide ESSID?

Thanks.

John
