Sounds to me like you are having driver problems. When you put the card in,
do you hear a high beep and then a low beep?

I only have experience with the orinoco_cs driver.
So you have been using both drivers at different times?

This could be a bit messy. It took me a long time to get mine setup.
Sorry I could not be more help.
