However, further cost reductions caused a new, lighter firmware to be designed and the amount of on-chip memory to shrink, making it impossible to run the older version of the firmware on the latest chips.

Cards with higher output were originally intended for OEM use interail routers or other networking equipment and may not work inyersil typical PC Laptop Computers. However, a reverse engineering effort eventually made it possible to use the new Prism54 chipsets under the Linux and BSD operating systems.
I believe Prism1 chipsets are extinct and you are unlikely to find them anymore.
