I've implemented one HostAP Driver. I didn't reffer Jouni's Host AP Driver. But my query is how to retrive Firmware version, in dot.3 (x.y.z) format, using the PRISM OID's. Because I've got a D-Link 650 WLAN NIC but I don't know the exact version of the Sta and Pri Firmware inside that. I just want to know. That's it.

OID FD02 gives the folowing info(So I guess Pri F/W version as 1.0) PRI Identity :- CompID=21, Variant=5, Major Version = 1, Minor Version= 0

OID FD20 gives the following info( So I guess Sta F/W version as 1.3) STA Identity :- CompID=31, Variant=4, Major Version = 1, Minor Version= 3

Since most of u are specifying the version in x.y.z. I wonder how come u find the Firmware version in 3 octets while the NIC gives that info only in x.y format.
