I have managed to get this working with 3.1.31-7. However, my kernel drivers are selected for a driver 'orinoco' while the pcmcia package based drivers are wlan_cs. The wlan_cs drivers are the older drivers for the D-Link DWL-650 and are being replaced by these orinoco drivers. It's a real problem whenever I try to load in a new kernel and have all these drivers conflict like this. Using the pcmcia-source, I was able to get the card working, but only as a wvlan_cs driver based card. Using the kernel drivers and the upgraded pcmcia-cs utilities, I was able to get back to the orinoco drivers, for the time being.

Of course, this will probably all break as I'm recompiling my kernel for sound support. It seems that I never did have the correct drivers in my kernel!
