I've tested a DWL-650+ and it has an TI acx111 chipset based card. It
didn't work for me, I couldn't even connect to the open network :-/.

lspci -v reports:
03:00.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface
        Subsystem: D-Link System Inc: Unknown device 3b05
        Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
        Memory at 20820000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled]
        Memory at 20800000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [disabled] [size=128K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

The actual chip used is ACX111 and open source drivers are in the early stages
of development. Texas Instruments isn't releasing spec files so situation is
somewhat grim. I suggest a better card with a chipset from a Linux-friendly
