Does the pcmcia card use an Intel chipset? The PCI versions of that card use a Broadcom chipset, in which case the ipw2200 drivers aren't going to work.

Unfortunately, I have bad news for you. The Dell 1350 is indeed built upon the Broadcom chip. Here are the details.

I am trying to get this puppy working under OpenBSD, with limited success to this point.
