A new version of Prism2/2.5/3 Host AP was just released and is now
available from

This release is from the stable branch. I probably wait couple of days
to find out whether there are any issues with the stable release. After
this, I'm planning to start making development branch releases (v0.2.x).


2004-02-08 - v0.1.3

* fixed IEEE 802.11 defragmentation when using host-based WEP
  decryption and bridging packets between two associated STAs
  (this caused a kernel crash in dev_queue_xmit())
* reconfigure fragmentation threshold after Port0 enable to work around
  issues with some STA firmware versions forgetting the configured
* restore retry limit after card reset
* update STA RX statistics also in Repeater mode
* hostap_cs: fixed CS reset when the netdev is down: need to reset
  hardware even in this case to make resume from suspend mode work
* fixed error reporting from Genesis mode download
* changed README to use 'make' instead of 'make pccard/pci/plx' when
  building the driver
* replaced CardServices() calls with calls to matching pcmcia_*()
  functions (required for Linux 2.6.2 and newer)
* fixed module reference counting of hostap_crypt_wep module for
  Linux 2.6.x (i.e., prevent it from be unloaded if it is still used)


2004-02-08 - v0.1.3

* prism2_srec: ignore PDR 0x0413 if it is not used (this allows some
  of the newer STA firmware 1.8.x versions to be downloaded)
* prism2_srec: fixed combined RAM download of PRI and STA firmwares
  to use correct start address


2004-02-08 - v0.1.3

* fixed event loop to call signal handlers only after returning from
  the real signal handler
* reset sta->timeout_next after successful association to make sure
  that the previously registered inactivity timer will not remove the
  STA immediately (e.g., if STA deauthenticates and re-associates
  before the timer is triggered).
