D-Link changes chipssets among the same "version" of the card. I have a 
DWL-650G rev C, which is Atheros (although I'm running windows, I'm 
running Wireless capture software, which requires a special driver --- 
I'm using a NetGear with a known Atheros chipset in my Gentoo machine). 
I'm confused by which card you might have, unlikely it's the same as 
mine, but you'll have to dig to figure it out. Maybe just try a couple 
of things.

About masked packages - find the howto, use it. All the Atheros 
(MadWifi) projects are masked, too.
