I know this is probably not much help, but I have a DLink DWL-660 which
works wonderfully under both Debian Stable & Unstable, and SuSE 9.1. It
uses the orinoco_cs module, and (I believe) is a Prism2 based card.
Biggest bummer for me is the 660 doesn't support WPA...guess what the
university is rolling out for wireless access?? Grrrr.
I know the Dlink 650's use a slightly different chipset, but I know people
who have them working under Linux (Debian in fact). Make sure you have the
hotplug package installed and the right kernel modules compiled (just
compile all the WiFi modules for starters, then strip out the ones you
don't need later).
What problems/errors are you getting with your current set up?
