The problem was that WA840G was not configured with the "open access"
option, and that's why my USR PCMCIA card can not authentify
automatically because it has not got a correct user ID and password to
get access into network. Solucion: configure the WA840G access point to
and "open access" system.

Selecting the wireless function
Follow the steps below to select the wireless function to be activated when
you set the WIRELESS switch on your computer to on.
Double-click (wireless switch icon) on the Notification area at the bottom right
of the desktop.The Wireless Device Switch dialog box appears.
The appearance of the wireless switch icon changes depending on the selected wireless
Point to the wireless switch icon to display the selected wireless function.
Alternatively, you can right-click the wireless switch icon and select "show Wireless
Device Switch settings" to display the Wireless Device Switch dialog box.
Select the desired wireless function from "Wireless LAN" or "Bluetooth Device".
5 GHz Wireless LAN is available on certain models only.
You must select at least one wireless function to perform wireless communications.
The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wireless LAN functions employ different frequency bandwidths, thus are not compatible with each other.
Checking the check box for both "Enable 2.4 GHz Wireless LAN" and "Enable Bluetooth Device" may cause poor communication performance or a connection loss due to electromagnetic interference.
The message "Setting up the wireless devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." appears first, then the Wireless Device Switch dialog box is closed, and finally the dialog box that describes what to do with the icon on the Notification area appears.
While the message "Setting up the Wireless Devices. Process may take several minutes. Please wait." is displayed, do not:
place your computer into power saving mode.
turn off Windows or log off from the current user.
turn on and off the WIRELESS switch.
Confirm the settings and click OK.
The dialog box about the icon on the Notification area closes.
If you check the "Don't show this dialog in the future" check box, the dialog box will not appear next time you close the Wireless Device Switch dialog.
To analyze the network condition
You can analyze the network condition if you select either or both of the wireless functions under "Wireless LAN" in step 2 above. Click the "Diagnose" button to start Windows Network Diagnostics.
When the network analysis is complete, the result is displayed. If any problems are found, follow the on-screen instructions.
Windows Network Diagnostics is the function to identify problems the network has and present solutions to them.
unplug router for 10 seconds and plug back in. Then try. If needed, use network setup wizard. You can also renew your pc's ip address by going to start menu, then run. Then type ipconfig/ release then type ipconfing /renew and everything should be fine.
You can get the ip-address by visiting this http://www.ip-details.com/ .It's used to search and find ip address's,domain name host's whois information
including city, country, global latitude & longitude coordinates.
Based on your post/description, I would assume that though you did not complete the upgrade, you were able to restore the WA840G to the original/old firmware. Second, you still wish to upgrade again but using a different method other than web configuration.
Perhaps you can try a telnet session to 192.168.1.1 or the default which is 192.168.40.1 or the IP add you have set it to if you have modified it before. I have successfully tried this on a LinkSys WRT54G & NetGear MR814V2. Might or might not work for you. "?" or help should give you the basic line commands.
But then again, if the system has crashed and the unit is bricked, that is a harder problem and you might be better off replacing the unit.
Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
