Thank you for your answer.
Could you help me to reflash the boot block? In my opinion it worth a
try. (I know i can kill it. But this is my problem. :)
Is it possible to do the flashing without any specific hardware? For
example using the Cisco PCI adapter that came with this wireless
Do you have any boot block images? (or even the modified one)
