Please don't top post - it's a violation of list policy.

Did you also update to the latest code in addition to installing the
1.20 firmware?  Also, after installing the 1.20 firmware, did you shut
down the computer completely - some cards do not get powered down
properly and thus do not reload the new firmware unless you physically
power down the PC.

If so, please provide your dmesg ouput.

Devin
