The DWL-650+ is a very different card to the DWL-650. You will need to wait 
for someone to finish writing a driver specifically for the 650+, or more 
generally, for the Texas Instruments USR2210 chipset.

The DWL-650+ is a CardBus card (essentially, PCI on a PCMCIA card). It is 
likely that your (10Mbps?) Ethernet card is a plain PCMCIA card (aka PC Card), 
which is more like ISA, so it won't appear on lspci.
