Odd.. RID FD0B (NICID) should certainly have 8 bytes of data, not 2. This does not happen on D-Link DWL-650 I use (though it has different NICID), nor does it happen with another card using same 0x800c NIC. Does your card still work with the older versions? And it reports NICID correctly with them?

I changed driver code to abort on first NIC/PRI/STA read failure and this caused the own hwaddr remaining 00:00:00:00:00:00. However, the component IDs are just extra info, so I removed this change and the current CVS version now ignores errors reading them. Please try again with the newest snapshot and report the results.
