You are correct new firmware did not solve wlan and audio problem.
LAN come in in 5 minutes delay.

I already test new firmware.
It cause more problem than old firmware because it will not boot from

u:\boot\olpc.fth correctly and will pass thru it with nothing happen.

So, if anyone don't have old firmware then they have to:

1. press esc at boot time it will prompt ok
2. type exactly below:

boot u:\boot\olpc.fth

I will follow your recommend by changing kernel to your std stable
and will let you know if sound and lan will work correctly.
