Change in Intersil cards?

I've been using mostly Philips Prism2 cards with HostAP and they have been working great. But today I got some new cards delivered and suddenly they don't work in HostAP mode. I get no unusual messages in any logs, but clients can't find any AP with the specified ESSID.

Has anyone heard of any changes from Intersil unabling cards to work in HostAP mode, or is it a Philips thing?

Could someone give me a hint how to pull the firmware out of a card and compare them? Maybe I can inject the firmware from an older card in a new and see what happens?

Sincerely yours,
