Here's my contribution to the Documentation effort :-)
PRI: '1.0.7' to '1.1.0'.
STA: '1.3.' to '1.4.9'.
You need a Windows box and drivers which can see the card.
I can vouch for the NetGate 1.4.9 firmware.
You'll need to check the dmesg when HostAP loads - read the NIC line - it tells you the type (the 4 hex digits above) of the prism card you have. Then read the PDF's in the 1.4.9.zip file and decide which PRI and STA files you need to load into your card.
I always upgraded both at the same time, so I don't know if you can do one without the other.
Ignore the actual firmware in the zip-exe and extract the program 'WinUpdate-0-5-1-0.exe' and install it. Load the PRI and STA hex files and click 'Update', then check for the new version using the menu.
I think both the AutoUpdate and the WinUpdate applications are smart enough to do the type checking to say that the DLink DWL-520 card is a type 0x8013 and won't let you load an image written for another type, but I'm *not* sure on this.
