Try adding 0x0005 to your manfid list.

| First, I'm running KRUD Red Hat 7.3 and started out by adding:
| card "D-Link DWL-650"
| manfid 0x0156, 0x0002
| bind "wvlan_cs"
| to /etc/pcmcia/config as suggested on the web at
| <http://www.focusresearch.com/dwl-650.html>. I didn't run netconfig as
| they suggested and figured I could start the interface using
| /sbin/iwconfig eth1
| That does give me a listing of info, but the values look rather
| suspicious. For example - Frequency:10.885GHz !
| Looking at the log files I find a section that reads:
| wvlan_cs: WaveLan/IEEE PCMCIA driver v1.0.6
| wvlan_cs: (c) Andreas Neuhaus <andy at fasta.fh-dortmund.de>
| wvlan_cs: index 0x01: Vcc 3.3, irq 3, io 0x0100-0x013f
| wvlan_cs: Registered netdevice eth1
| wvlan_cs: MAC address on eth1 is 00 05 5d ed 8c c1
| wvlan_cs: Unrecognised card, card return vendor = 0x0005, please
| wvlan_cs: Found firmware 0x10003 (vendor 5) - Firmware
| Look like I'm partly there, but not quite. Anything I'm doing that is
| obviously wrong? Suggestions?
