so there is no one who can help me with this problem? its working fine in windows and internet is fine when I access it using my ethernet port.. could it have something to do with the drivers... anyone?
I got the same problem on my Mandrake 10.0 official & DWL-650+, once I finished installation, this defect just came up and I have no idea how to solve it coz I'm totally new in linux... BTW, as Mr. Jatt_thugz said this card works perfectly on winXP, just one different thing which is my "Bit Rate" shows "22Mb/s" (not 2 Mb/s) and that's it! Someone please tell us how to solve it or simply provide the related links, thanks in advance.
Forgot to say, I consider there is no problem on the net condition coz I have changed back to use the ethernet and the download speed is about 235Kb/s (as I use the wireless, the speed was 6Kb/s), and the hardware and the firmware for my DWL-650+ is H/W:B1 F/W:1.9.

I have tried the driverloader provided by the link you said, however, it still doesn't work at all...
I don't know why, when I install the rpm, the message just told me "No devices detected by the driverloader"..
How can I do? I'm getting really nervous with this mass..
Mr. Jatt_thugz, was your installing process really smooth? or you may tell your experience here.. thanks!
1) do uname -r in console to find out exactly which kernel u have.
2) download and install the rpm specific to your kernel
3) simply point your browser to DriverLoader's web configurator at http://127.0.0.1:18020/ and login as "root" to complete the installation.
4) reboot your machine with your wlan card in it.
5) iwconfig wlan0 will show you your card
6) ifdown eth0
7) ifdown wlan0
6) ifup wlan0 to get the internet connection going
tell me if it doesnt work for you.. good luck and btw instructions are on linuxant website as well.
