I've now tried both standard and crossover cables with the same result.  Also,
the card works as advertised in a G4 running OS X, connected directly to the
AirPort, with the driver supplied by Asanté.  

I'm assuming this means the tlp driver doesn't fully support this card.  Is it
possible to try a different driver?  Scanning the archives, it looks like de
and tlp support some of the same interfaces.  I don't see a reference to de in
my kernel config file, though.  Do I just comment out the tlp line, add one
like 'de*    at pci? dev ? function ?', and recompile?

Thanks for all your comments so far.
