Recently i bought ASUS WL-100(prism 2.5 based) pcmcia 802.11b WLAN card.
On windows in ASUS utilities it shows firmware(i guess it is STA
firmware) version as 1.7.4 (it does not show primary firmware version)
while in linux it shows STA firmware version as 1.4.2 
Any comments on this? should i update the firmware or not?

command  "hostap_diag wlan0" gives following output

Host AP driver diagnostics information for 'wlan0'

NICID: id=0x800c v1.0.0 (PRISM II (2.5) PCMCIA (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.0
STAID: id=0x001f v1.4.2 (station firmware)
