Ok, I am sure that my card has a Orinoco chip and is not based on HFA* or
something. I have flashed a PDA to another working Card of the same type
with the DOS flash tool. This tool is from Intersil for Prism Cards. But You
can Read and Flash PDA and Firmware for Orinoco Cards too. So I got confused
and came over many websites to hostap. The possibility that prism2_srec
would not work with my card don't came to my mind.
