how to upgrade firmware


How can i upgrade the firmware of my wireless lan card, its a cisco aironet. I have downloaded the .img file and i dont know what to do with it. I need to upgrade the firmware because it locks my machine up everytime I put the PCMCIA card in the slot.
Thanks

If you've got the firmware hotplug option in your kernel compiled then the firmware might be loaded automaticly.
Just put jour firmware in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware and fire up the driver
