I guess the flashing _should_ work with '-i'-flag because it is the correct
firmware, but I can't be 100% sure, 99.9% maybe.

Actually only thing I noticed under very short testing period, was that the         
 Link Quality, Signal level and Noise level values becomes randomize after upgrading
1.5.6-->1.7.0. Since the 1.5.6 has always been working great for me (about two years
now) and because I don't need WPA (yet!) but need those values I prefer to use
