wifi on 5.3, sort of OT

I didn't see a wifi mailing list, so thought I would ask here, where the 
real experts hang out  ;)

I am tired of having to log into windoze in order to access my network 
over wifi.  I think this would be much easier if I wasn't using a notebook.
 From reading the handbook it appears that the process will take some 
doing, since I need wifi plus cardbus.

Problem seems to be right now that my Netgear WG511T cardbus card  
doesn't seem to be reconginized. 

wi, cardbus, pcmcia, and the bridge are all compiled into my kernel.  
Possibly a couple other related devices.

I have attached my dmesg.  Any hints would be appreciated.

Thanks,  Rob
