NetworkManagerInfo not finding rt2400 Wireless PCMCIA card (which is active)

I have the exactly same error when I start NetworkManager info. I have
set the eth1 (wireless) device to start up on boot and
the network comes up fine. However, I dont get the wireless applet in
the notification area (where its supposed to come after
run). If I set ONBOOT=no, then no network comes up (and I get the same
PRODID_2="Wireless LAN Card"
I have a suspicion that HAL is not detecting it (the only net.interface
property is set on my unused eth0)
Any ideas on how to correct this ?
