Hi

Just pulled the following off acx11.sf.net


The + in DWL-120+, DWL-520+ and DWL-650+ is what's important:
The normal version uses the good and well-supported Prism 2.5 chipset, whereas the + version uses the obscure ACX100 chipset.
Oh wait, it's even worse: a newer version of the DWL-650 (the one with grey antenna) is said to also have the ACX100, so it's even more difficult to tell them apart!! ARGH! Consider not buying these cards! (plus, the 650+ seems to be defective/problematic much more often than other cards, in my experience)


Sorry sounds like you need to buy a new card.
