It's a Netgear MA401 pcmcia card in a netgear MA301 pci adapter.
The versions are:
NIC: id=0x8008 v1.0.0
PRI: id=0x15 v0.3.0
STA: id=0x1f v1.7.1

Well, you've been lucky to have the promiscuous mode up and running then.
As far as I know, that mode is not supported by all cards, and those that
do support it, have not announced said support in their specifications. So
it seems a matter of test&fail to discover which cards do support it, and
which do not.

Could you share what wireless card model are you using, that supports
promiscuous mode?

Good luck with that protocol implementation :)
