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 

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.
