It depends on what went wrong.. Compaq WL200 is unfortunately using
hfa3841, so getting into Genesis mode to fix issues is somewhat
difficult (requires hardware modifications). However, if only STA
firmware is corrupted, it might be possible to fix the issue.

Could you give some more details of what actually happened? What
firmware versions were in the card originally? Which firmware image was
downloaded? Which prism2_srec command did you use? Which driver version
are you using?
