Most likely nobody bothered to add WCF11 to the hostap_cs.conf file.  Run
"cardctl ident" and you'll see the identification strings and numbers.
Add this information to hostap_cs.conf and restart cardmgr.  If it works,
please send the output of "cardctl ident" to the mailing list.

linux-wlan-ng knows Linksys WCF11, although it's probably a newer revision
than your card (if it actually uses Prism2 chipset):

card "Linksys WCF11 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card (Prism 2.5)"
  version "The Linksys Group, Inc.", "Wireless Network CF Card", "ISL37300P", "RevA"
  bind "prism2_cs"
