ndiswrapper perhaps, then?

I have no idea.  That comment was only applicable if you use -Dwext,
though -- I don't believe there's any reason to bother with the WE
version if you're using some random other driver.

However, at this point, the best thing I can come up with is to try
ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers for this card.  (wlags sounds like
an Agere chipset...  hmm.)  If that doesn't work, I don't really know of
anything else to try.
