hmm, might be that way. But iirc there was a report from somebody with a 
DEC2540t(which is basically a DEC2000t + CI slot) on this mailing list 
who said that it only worked for not encrypted channels.
But probably you only know for sure if you try it yourself ;)

The firmware is taken from the windows application.

have you checked if there is maybe a firmware update available?
