remove any file that looks like its a prism modules in /etc/modutils
and update the modules.conf file with the update-modules script


the following is not the answer to your question but..

most people would kill to have your setup, where the prism based 
card is recognized by "linux"

wpa support is only available in 2 linux drivers ( prism-based hostAP
driver and atheros-chips madwifi driver )


ndiswrapper is used for all the other gazillion unsupported wifi chipset 
like broadcom that does not have linux drivers
