D-Link Linux support page* seems to point to Realtek drivers for M1 so
that is not likely to work with Host AP drivers. D-Link DWL-650 rev P1
and D-Link DWL-520 rev E1 are Prism3-based. Just keep in mind that those
do not have primary firmware image in flash and require firmware
download on driver initialization.

(which btw was the first link on Google search for d-link dwl 650 m1...)
