Conversation: Host AP mode with STA f/w v1.4.x Subject: Host AP mode with STA f/w v1.4.x
Thanks to Jim and Michael for reporting that STA f/w images for version 1.4.9 are available from http://www.netgate.com/support/prism_firmware/. I was able to test this firmware version and it indeed fixes Host AP mode that was broken in 1.4.2. The upgrade package had a change log for different versions and it looks like the probe response bug was fixed in 1.4.3, so I would assume that all 1.4.3 to 1.4.9 versions would work fine.
This firmware package was even better. Now I finally have a RAM downloadable (i.e., like tertiary AP f/w) secondary STA firmware. This was exactly the thing for which I wrote download support to Host AP driver. In other words, it is possible to upgrade the card during initialization without changing flash contents, i.e., much lower probability of breaking something ;-).
While testing this, I also noticed that I have managed to break download support in the latest CVS version.. ;-) Anyway, I'm using a semi-fixed version in testing and will commit this to CVS after cleaning it up a bit.
