3com 3crshpw796 with admtek 8211 chip

I have an new Wirelesscard for my Laptop. Its an 3Com Cardbus-Card 3CRSHPW796 with an ADM8211-Chip on it. Under Windows its working well, but under Linux it isnt!
I have an 2.4.23er kernel compiled with gcc 3.2 what i have installed under debians current stable distri woody.

First i tried the driver from 3com-site. It is an modified version 1.03 from admteks driver. but this is not compiling without error. Why?
It tells "unused struct content"

Second I got the driver 1.05 from the admtek-site This I modified like (the vendor-ids).
It is compiling without errors!But i can't get any connection to my accesspoint. This isnt working with and without wep-encryption. Sometimes if i'm switching to ad-hoc-mode and then back to managed-mode i get the correct MAC-Address of my Accesspoint but no connection. I know, that the last iwconfig command has to set the essid to get the former commands into the card.

I have also installed the new wireless-tools 26, but nothing.

What could be wrong? How can I get this working? I have to get this working but some weeks of googling and testing something didnt help.

Thank you for your help!
