hp ze5385 laptop pcmcia wireless

ok this will sound a bit nutty. i have two wireless cards on my system. one is integrated and the other is pcmcia card. the reason for this is that i've had problems with the integrated card working with my wireless router. so i bought a dlink dwl-650+ to go with the dlink di-614+ router. the problem is that when i go to mandrake hardware browser, it doesn't see the card. is this because its not loading the pcmcia modules properly? what else could it be?

unfortunately the 650+ has a texas instruments chipset (AX100??) that is not supported under linux.
see if you can return the card for one that is! the dlink 660 works (i think its a rebadged orinoco), thats what I have now...

ze5385 wireless card

Hai ruben!

Did you got your card working. I tried many things and nothing works for me. My card is lying dead in the machine. Do you have any solutions.
