Actually I used Windows to flash back to 1.5.6, there are utilities out there
that will allow you to do this.  Beware though, XP-SP2 breaks some of these

After I have it flashed back to 1.5.6, HostAP will load fine. I then download
the 1.7.4 firmware via HostAP utilities:

prism2_srec -rp wlan0 rf010704.hex

The card works fine (for WPA etc) when I do this.  It just wont work if 1.7.4 is
"flashed" to the card...
