To conclude the story - the DWL-650P card doesn't work on that Pentium III
800 MHz system even with Windows 2000 with the official D-Link drivers.
Also, linux-wlan-ng 0.2.1-pre17 works with the card when it's in a PLX9052
slot, but not in the TI slot. When in the TI slot, the primary firmware
fails to read the PDA. That's consistent with the problems observed with
I guess we should just accept the fact that DWL-650P doesn't work on some
machines with any drivers and any OSes.
