This requires PRISM2_DOWNLOAD_SUPPORT definition in driver/module/hostap_config.h.
I remember it took me a while to get this working in FC2, but that was my first linux install and I wasn't quite sure what all the commands did. Now 1 year later, I know I am doing everything right. I have the variables in the hostap_fw_load file correctly set to the firmware files.
