DWL 520 (the PCI version) Rev. C is _not_ prism 2.5 based.  Those smart
guys think customers are so dumb that they could switch the chipset without
changing the product name.

Look at the cover of the box.  Rev A and B has a metal boxy cover with
color prints, while Rev C does not.  Rev C only shows bare chips.

One of the nice thing about DWL520 (A&B) is that it is rare dual
voltage kind (3V and 5V).  And it is cheap.
