1: i set up hostap using toshiba laptop P2-266-96MB and card from a WET-11
RE: post http://lists.bawug.org/pipermail/wireless/2003-August/013154.html
I have install Tekram PCF200 driver, + pcmcia card from Linksys WET11
The driver load ok, card recognized as an IEEE 802.11b WLAN PC Card v3.0
Can connect to WAP11 flashed with DWL900AP+ firmware
I try to update card using winupdate with prism25-156.zip firmware found
from above link.
when i start winupdate it load in memory "i see it with CTL+ALT+DEL
but it never comes the foreground .
i try WinUpdate-0-5-1-0 it also seem to stay in background.
So I updated the card using DOS>flash.exe V0.5
flash -legacy -5v
flash -legacy -5v -on -i Pk010101.hex
flash -legacy -5v -g -d sf010506.hex
All seems ok and now i see from dmesg
wlan0: NIC: id=0x801b v1.0.0
wlan0: PRI: id=0x15 v1.0.7
wlan0: STA: id=0x1f v.1.5.6
I would like to try later firmware 1.7.1 1.7.4 1.8
but as i cant backup working card with winupdate
Or flash.exe it wont play backup either
Can any one help me with some reason winupdate not working
befor i kill my card with trying other firmware.
2: Do you think this laptop up to hostap job with 8 client connect
