I just don't know a better download place. Well let's see how long it 
stays there. The page says, the file is from 2005/10/05. The url itself 
looks like it contains a session id or something for tracking 
"9999ccd06a4813cb827dbb0005071c71").

Maybe it would be better, to try to extract firmware from files from the 
current download section of Technotrend? (version 2.19 instead of 2.17?)
I don't have such card / device, so I can't test this.
