    Default Wireless Card Prism2 Firmware

    Hello,
    im new here and got a question about my wireless card.
    At present i installed bt2 on my ibm x30 with an integrated prism2 card from intersil.
    I tryed hostap the hostap howto but it doesnt work. dmesg| grep eth1 says :
    eth1: HArdwre identity 8013:0000 .....
    eth1: Connot read station identity :error -61
    eth1: Incompatible firmware, aborting

    So i think i need to flash a new firmware but im not shure. Can anyone give me Support?
    Regards
    Alex



    EDIT: The current error msg from syslog ist
    wlan0: MAC port 0 enabling failed
    wlan0: could not enable MAC port

    Don't know what you mean by "hostap howto" are you saying you've blacklisted the Orinoco and Hermes drivers?

    I'd have to check, but iirc it was always best to use 1.74 firmware on prism cards........
