Problem with SMC2532W-B V2 (0xd601 0x0010)

I'm having a tough time getting this card working in hostap. From my
googling, I've determined that this is the version 2, Prism3 card
(version 1 was Prism2.5). It's a high-power 200mW pc card.
I'm running Gentoo 2005.1, kernel 2.6.12-gentoo-r10, pcmcia-cs-3.2.8,
and I've tried both hostap-0.3.9 and hostap-0.4.4
I've had to add the following, per other people's hints, to
card "SMC2532W-B EliteConnect Wireless Adapter"
version "SMC", "SMC2532W-B EliteConnect Wireless Adapter", "", ""
manfid 0xd601, 0x0010
In the syslog, I see the following when issuing "cardctl insert" (or
when just plugging the card in):
Oct 2 16:09:33 hostname cardmgr: socket 0: SMC2532W-B

As you can see, it can't find a valid PDA even though other people have
claimed success with this card and hostap.
"cardctl info" outputs:
PRODID_2="SMC2532W-B EliteConnect Wireless Adapter"
By the way, I have two of these cards and they both do the same thing.
I'm doubting problems with the hardware itself. And I haven't tried
them in Windoze yet (nor do I have the means to do so...).
Any ideas folks?
