Thumbs up 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
root@slax: ping

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

Select 1.7.4.tar.gaz you can save to disk

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.

You can go to this link for more info if you don’t feel safe with my guide
But I was able to flash it cause forum’s had stated that it injects better…

You can also read this link and do the windows version I rather stick with linux
