Read the page below and the those linked from it. There are bootable Linux 
floppies/cds that have the ability to update Prism firmware.


I prefer the Intersil winupdate.exe utility. YMMV.

As it's an HWB3163 rev.B (i.e. old Prism2) card many firmware images won't be 
compatible. Primary 0.3.0 (you already have it) and station 1.5.6 or 1.7.1 
are the most recent AFAIK.
