The DWL-520+ is the 22 Mbps version that indeed uses the TI chipset. But I 
believe I've seen posts of people with 520 non-plus cards that had 
non-PRISM chipsets also, though I fail to find where (I know for sure that 
there are at least different versions of the PRISM-based card, with 
different PCI bus requirements). I might be wrong and have generalized the 
WMP11 issues a bit too fast...
