prism2-usb-firmware-installer will at the time of its own installation
download the firmware files for the prism2_usb devices from the
upstream code repository and convert them to the format used by the
kernel modules since 2.6.32.
The downloaded file will be used as-is by the 2.6.31 kernel. If you
have an earlier kernel you will have to install the
linux-wlan-ng-firmware package instead.
Note that only some adapters really need a firmware file and that
firmware files are not completely free (in the sense of freely
redistributable), which is why this package exists.
