The choice is easy.  We have over 7000 units out in the field using Intersil radios.  1.5.6 is the
only stable version.

some Cut & Paste from:

http://wleiden.webweaving.org:8080/svn/node-config/ops/papers/i368-hardware-considerations.txt

Versions:
- 1.3.2 ap-modus hangs after a while
- 1.4.2 buggy in ap-modus
- 1.4.9 no ap-modus
- 1.5.4 please tell me
- 1.5.6 runs apmodus, few error reports in ap modus, no hangs
- 1.7.1 please tell me
- 1.7.4 kismet reports it as an ap; ap-mode works using hostap-0.1.0
using linux; ap-mode doesn't work with FreeBSD 5.0 but does work with
5.1

I found the firmware here:
- http://www.netgate.com/support/prism_firmware/
- http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/firmware/
- http://www.red-bean.com/~proski/firmware/

and

will not work... it has no prism chipset.

there's an general advice to not downgrade firmware,
but I have done it from 1.7.4. to 1.5.6
if you don't up/downgrade primairy firmware (current 1.1.1)
there is not much chance to ruin the card, but there is always a risk :)
