Question Intel 915 express, D-Link DWA 525 PCI Wireless card - Can't see PCI devices

I recently purchased a brand new D-Link DWA 525 wireless network card for my old desktop running Ubuntu 11.04 with an Intel 915 motherboard. To my horror, I found that the card was still widely unsupported and D-Link's own drivers were in alpha.

That apart, I couldn't find this card when I did an lspci, or an lsmod for that sake. The system remains oblivious to this card.

My desktop has two PCI slots and I've tried pushing the card in both with similar results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, otherwise it's money going down the toilet for me.

Here's the o/p from lspci:
