Given that just changing the table prefix gave that error it is almost certainty "two sets of tables been put into the same database". The tables schema has no been updated and hence the missing ext table.

Change the table prefix back to 2011_. Upload the /install/ directory to the root of the board and run www.example.com/install/database_update.php
