I've got a D-Link DWL-650 PCMCIA wireless card and I'm trying to
make it work with gentoo and my Dell laptop. I'm competely clueless
here as I've never made wireless work on linux before. I've tried
using ndiswrapper and cardmgr to load the drivers, but ndiswrapper
won't see the hardware at all and cardmgr gives me these error
messages when I put the card in:

Jun 14 11:08:58 [kernel] hermes @ IO 0x280: Timeout waiting for card
to reset (reg=0x0000)!

sysfs-support of your device's driver needs to be fixed, please report

I take it I'm not using the right driver. What driver should I be
using? Is there an easy way to make these cards work?
