I recently purchased a D-Link DWL-650 16-bit pcmcia card. When I put the card in on my 5.2rc1 laptop it told me card unsuported. I looked arround on the Internet and found my card had a prism3 chipset, good but bad. Since the name of the card, when read by pccardd, is a little different I put the card in my 4.9 laptop and added a line to /etc/pccard.conf. When the card went in the wi driver was loaded, but this came up:

pccard: card inserted, slot 0
pccardd[42]: Card "D-Link"("DWL-650 Wireless PC Card RevP"
) [ISL37101P-10] [A3] matched "D-Link" (DWL-650 Wireless PC Card RevP") [(null)
] [(null)]

The Lucent Wavelan cards work fine, the one I have is sold as an Avaya (Avaya Wireless World Card 11 Mb/s GOLD) but it's the same thing. It works instantly under 4.X and even 5.2rc2.
