    No problem ....

    Anyway, I assume you have but just to be sure, have you checked the Netgear site? www.netgear.com

    Also, just curious why you need that specific release. What issues are you having that are causing you to look for it?

    Are you using an IBM Thinkpad?

    I've checked the netgear website and they dont seem to have anything later than 1.03.04.00, which is what I have flashed on the card already.

    Ok, bit more background ... I actually have 2 of these cards. One I have flashed at 1.03.04.00 and a second card that reports it is flashed at 1.03.06.00 (according to the Winupdate program that comes with the resource CD (2.0).

    I've noticed that the second card (1.03.06.00 f/w) works much better with my Wireless AP and the other card which is at the 1.03.04.00 f/w level doesnt.

    So ... long story short, as they are the same card, I wanted to update the 1st card to the same f/w level as the second to get it to work properly ;-)

    Cheers

    I've tried to find that FW update but haven't had any luck. If I were you, I'd try emailing or calling Netgear. Not sure if it would do any good but it's worth a try. In the meantime, maybe someone else will have other suggestions. Sorry I couldn't be of more help ...

    BTW, the reason I asked if it was a Thinkpad is because IBM has a FM update of that version number for their wireless cards in Thinkpads. I suspect it's probably a card made by Netgear for IBM but not sure. I'm not suggesting using it if you don't have a Thinkpad though.
