There are so many revisions of the DWL-650 with different chipsets. The
M1 revision has a Realtek chipset, which is unfortunately not supported
by FreeBSD (yet).

DWL-520 E1 should actually have a PRISM chipset, but I can tell from
Googling around a bit that something must be strange about this card as
other people seem to have problems with it under Linux too. The WPC11
Ver. 4 has the dreaded Realtek chipset as well, so that's why it
doesn't work. :(

Get some Senao card, e.g. from www.netgate.com. Those are decent cards
and known to work with FreeBSD/m0n0wall.
