The errors at eject time are par for the course.  They aren't related
to your problem.

(1) when you do try to transmit, do you get any additional kernel
    error messages?  Anything about tx timeouts?
(2) Are you sure irq 3 is free?  Does /proc/interrupts show activity
    when you try to send packets through the interface?
(3) You say "the card and tail were reported as working".  Hmmm.  What
    does that mean?  You bought the card used?  Red flag?

I'm not familiar with the dongle on the DE-650.  Can you tell if the
LED(s) are supposed to indicate traffic, or just a valid link?  Many
dongles have a link light; that should be lit whether the driver works
or not, as long as power is supplied to the card and the cable is ok,
unless the card is bad.
