I use a slightly different command when loading the firmware, here are 
the steps i take.  remember that this is the new firmware which doesn't 
require the no_primary option

modprobe hostap_pci
modprobe hostap_crypt_wep
prism2_srec -gs wlan0 /etc/prism2/pm010102.hex
prism2_srec -gip wlan0 /etc/prism2/pm10102.hex
prism_srec -rp wlan0 /etc/prism2/rf010800.hex
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed
iwconfig wlan0 essid "essid-name"
iwconfig wlan0 enc open
iwconfig wlan0 key 0
iwconfig wlan0 key 0 wepkey
dhcpcd -t 10 -d wlan0

i notice that your second prism2_srec uses the -gp instead of the -gip, 
you may want to try that option.
