pciconf doesn't say anything about a pccard, but this seems related:

none3 at pci2:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x032e1154 chip=0x432014e4 rev=0x03  
     vendor   = 'Broadcom Corporation'
     device   = 'BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller'
     class    = network

If that is info of the card, then it's all wrong. It's supposed to be  
Buffalo WLI-CB-G54S
