Guide to flashing the SENAO NL-2511CD EXT2 Prism 2.5

Flashing the Firmware-Primary 1.1.1 Secondary 1.7.4

Boot into Live CD Backtrack V1
1.Slax login:root
  root@slax:startx on Konqueror-->Backtrack-->Wireless Tools-->Miscellaneous-->
  Switch to Host AP bash-3.00# hostap_diag wlan0
This should display firmware V1.1.0

Lets download the package up a command bash to download the proper firmware
  We will use a direct connection to the Internet

root@slax: ifconfig
root@slax: dhcpcd

You should now be online open up FireFox-type in the address box link below-

Open->look at your slackware desktop-

You will see the package-left click and open-

Select at the top Action-->Extract-->this will extract to the root of you disk

file:///root/ click on OK

Open up another command bash and type-
root@slax:cd 1.7.4

You can type to view the contain folder by typing ls

af010104.hex ak010104.hex pk010101.hex pm010102.hex rf010704.hex ru010704.hex sf010704.hex

You can type prism2_srec to see the options you would like to choose this is a utility for flashing

Safe way first for a test-

root@slax:~/1.7.4#prism2_srec -v wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

If everything looks good now you can add the final switch which is -f to flash your prism2 card

root@slax:~/1.7.4#prism2_srec -v -f wlan0 pk010101.hex sf010704.hex

After that you will see updating do not remove your card

Should state complete open up a command prompt

root@slax:hostap_diag wlan0

The results should be-

NICID: id=0x800c v1.0.0 (PRISM II (2.5) PCMCIA (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.1
STAID: id=0x001f v1.7.4 (station firmware)

And now you should have the firmware for v1.1.1 and 1.7.4 installed.
