Seems to be a Prism2 card. I think that the primary fw 0.3.0 is just ok, there is no
newer version. I am using 1.5.6 STA fw from for
my prism2 card:

NICID: id=0x8002 v1.0.1 (HWB3163-01,02,03,04 Rev A)
PRIID: id=0x0015 v0.3.0
STAID: id=0x001f v1.5.6 (station firmware)

There is also v1.7.1 version (s1010701.hex) in
but it doesn't work as goog as the v1.5.6 for me.

However I flashed my card by using Windows utility because prism2_srec complains
some incompatibility issues when I tried to update to v1.5.6 or v1.7.1.

Best Regards, Jar
