Hi All,

I've been trying to get my new DWL 520 E card working (after a couple of
days believing it was a <B> revision card).

I've downloaded the latest CVS:
I can load the module:
modprobe hostap_pci no_primary =1

I've dowloaded  PM010102.HEX but I am getting:
bash-2.05b# /root/hostap/utils/prism2_srec -v  wifi0 pm010102.hex
Special S3 firmware info record - name 'PM010102.HEX'

dmesg shows:

Any ideas what is happening?
