Doesn't look like any Prism2 chipset I've encountered. The firmware revisions are off the scale and the driver doesn't seem to be able to speak to the card at all.

Doesn't the WaveLan have its own driver in the kernel itself you can use?

If you browse the list archives here you'll find the "what cards do work" question comes up often and has been answered often as well. LinkSys and D-Link (non plus) cards work. There are dozens of others. And there are some that accept external antennas as well.
