Hosed Prism2 hardware by flashing firmware.. any solutions to repair my wifi card?

I've got a Thinkpad T30 with Cisco Aironet wifi hardware in a minipci
slot. Up until gutsy, I had been using the orinoco_pci driver, which has
worked very well for me, but now only the hostap driver is available,
and there are problems:

In an effort to get wifi working reliably, I attempted to flash the card
to upgrade its firmware, using these instructions:

Due to a problem caused by udev's persistent network naming system
( http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=365777 ), the
instructions didn't work right and in an attempt to get things resolved,
I started trying permutations of the command line and ended up flashing
just the "primary" firmware and not the "secondary," which, as is noted
in the Jun Sun HOWTO will leave you with non working hardware.

So, does anyone out there have a remedy for this? I'm thinking I may
have to go to ebay and buy a new minipci adapter... :-(
