U using latest version of -current, in fact even the original 5.0 DR1
iso release supported the card, kernel needed some minor modification,
but I am using the dlink dwl 520 in my box right now without any
problems.   And Brooks Davis was correct,  with shows up as a linksys
device on my machines.
If the original poster wants, I can send him my kernal config file, but
I think I really only had to add options card which I think was
commented out, not too sure, it was a while back, and I had a lot of
other issues with the kernels and the machine taking a huge dump to
panic mode a lot on some other things, like smbfs and smp.

Snippet of dmesg below.

wi0: <Linksys WMP11 PCI Prism2.5> mem 0xfb800000-0xfb800fff irq 2 at
device 10.0 on pci0
wi0: 802.11 address: 00:05:5d:da:5f:47
wi0: using RF:PRISM2.5 MAC:ISL3874A(Mini-PCI)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary 1.00.07, Station 1.03.05

If it's going to work the definition for the Linksys WMP11 will do it.
It will have the wrong name in dmesg, but that doesn't do anything. This
entry should be changed to reflect the fact that it's actually an
Intersil Prism 2.5 ID that lazy vendors are using.
