If it uses the Prism chipset why would you want to use ndiswrapper? You
can use the native wlan drivers in Linux which would give you much
better functionality I'd think.

It depends on which version of the DWL-650 card you have. D-Link has
released at least a couple revisions of that card with various chipsets.
You can check which yours is with lspci -v
Some are supported under linux (with another driver, eg the Prism2 based
cards) and some are not at all (ie the newest revision with the Realtek
8180 chipset). There has been some work to get ndiswrapper to work with
Realtek 8180 based cards, but as of yet, they do not. =20
