I'm assuming you are running prism2_srec when the network interface is
already up? It looks like the current driver does not enable hardware
properly in this case. If you run prism2_srec when the interface is down
or set the interface down&up after the upgrade, the card should work.

I'll take a look at this and try to fix the driver for the case where
the interface is up, although I would recommend doing firmware upgrades
before enabling the interface by setting the netdev up..
