i'm referring to the link at the kismac site, which now seem to be
down, but basically described how to flash the firmware on the v1
ma111 prism using a windows box and a custom flash utility. i'm just
curious because the ma cost me 8 dollars and i just want the best
performance. unfortunately i have a 12 inch powerbook so i can't use
any pcmcia cards and by what i've researched there isn't a usb pcm
adapter that will work. sorry for rambling but because of kismac i've
developed a great interest in network security and have learned to
compile, installed ethereal, snort, ettercap and anything else i can
get my hands on. i followed daily blogs of defcon, shmoocon, and
anything forum that'll have me. unfortunately, most support for mac
users seems to covet and guard their information, and few are willing
to help a newbie. obvious reasons of course and i understand what
these programs are designed for. anyways, i'd love to see more
information about using kismac in conjunction with ethereal, ettercap
and john the ripper. it seems that one needs to rely on a several
specialized tools for optimal intrusion testing. plus, more cool
programs to play with.

No. The firmware isn't upgradable AFAIK (I dont know as I dont have one).
Ma111v2 is different hardware (and doesn't work with KisMAC).

newbie here but have been following the developments for a few month's now.
is there any benefit to flashing the ma111 firmware to the latest version? i couldn't decipher from the posts and documentation which was the best protocol.
