I just installed 3.1.19.  Unfortunately, it also does not ID my
card correctly.  It has an entry for 0089/0113 intel pro combo,
but not for 0089/1103, which is the ID my card uses.  I hand edited
the config file and duplicated the 0089/0113 entry and adjusted
it for my card, and got partial success:

(the errors were reported as the card tried to obtain an IP through
DHCP).  I was not able to perform more testing with a statically
assigned IP since my home network is down at the moment.

Any ideas or suggestions?  Is this yet another rev of the card
that I was so lucky to receive?
