PCMCIA wireless CDMA card

I have a CDMA wireless card which I am trying to bring up.  However it does
not seem to be responding properly.  When trying to minicom to the device
to get an AT response I just get a bunch of garbage in the terminal
suggesting to me that it is not talking at a valid baud rate.

I have seen others on the list having similar problems with this card type.
 Has anyone had any luck with it?

I enabled debugging in the serial driver to try and get as much relevant
information as needed.  If any other information is needed please ask.
