As you have been told, this indicates a configuration problem:
"08:59:52 173 cardmgr: unsupported card in socket 1"
cardmgr does not recognize this card, i.e. has no config data about this
Cardmgr uses /etc/pcmcia/config to identify PCMCIA/PC Card manfid and
connect this to a driver.
Here you need to tell cardmgr that manfid: 0x02d0, 0x044d (product ID)
is bound to a certain driver "wl.o". See /etc/pcmcia/config for examples
on how to do this (notice that you will probably need to entries to this
file, one in the start to describe the card ("network") and one entry to
bind manfid,prodid to driver "wl.o").
Then cardmgr should be able to automatic load the driver on card
But you also have a problem when manually loading the module, and you
need to solve this problem first..
