You can't just insmod the wvlan_cs driver.  You have to modify
/etc/pcmcia/config to indicate that wvlan_cs should be bound to your

The way PCMCIA modules work... loading the module by itself has no
effect.  When a card is inserted, the cardmgr daemon looks it up in
the config file and tells the PCMCIA subsystem that "card X needs
driver Y", so when driver Y is loaded, the PCMCIA subsystem tells it
to deal with card X.

It sounds like your /etc/pcmcia/config file still says that your card
should be bound to the wavelan2_cs driver.
