I have similar problems: it can take minutes before my DWL-650 equipped AP (now running prism2 2002-04-05) associates with clients (one DWL-650, one Lucent). A colleague of mine with a DWL-650 has the same problems as well. If anyone has seen these problems and has found a workaround, we would be very interested.
Other than the slow association, things work great though.
All the best,
