Just use the Prism WinUpdate utility to dump the Firmware to file.
You won't be able to use this as a RAM upload tho...so there's not much
use..cept you can mabe make the .HEX file avail for others to
download..instead of having to install the driver.

1. Aren't those two images in flash on the card? Which means that once
updated with the Windows driver, you should be able to move it to a Linux
box and still have the updated firmware images?
2. What about extracting the images from the Windows driver file? I've
never looked at a firmware image, but the driver (PRISMNDS.SYS) contains a
bunch of lines like:
Which look very much like firmware flashing instructions to me :-) Of
course, once would have to find which bits are each of the two images, but
anybody familiar with the firmware file format should be able to find that
pretty easily... Actually, a very very quick look at those lines seems to
indicate that it includes the images for:
(grep S317FF20000007 on the file and decode the hex and you should get the
Don't ask me what they are, though :-) And I have no idea either of the
whereabouts of the primary firmware, but I believe it didn't change the one
you had on the card, probably for some compatibility issue... Wild guess:
it has images for primary 1.1.1 and station 1.5.4 for three different types
Just my 0.02 EUR...
