I think I got the wrong wireless card for my amiga

I think I may of got the wrong wireless card for my amiga.

Someone on here pointed me to a huge list of cards and said to find one that had a "prism 2" chipset.

I bought a brand new card, and it arrived, but instead of saying PCMCIA it says it is "Cardbus" - does this matter?

It is a DWL-650+

Amiga 600/1200 PCMCIA slot is 16-bit only. Cardbus is 32-bit. Both electrically and physically incompatible with 16-bit slot.

Try to get ahold of a Netgear MA401. They're compatible, cheap, and easy to find. (They typically run ~$15-20 on eBay)
