My D-Link DWL-G650+ was working on FC4 with 4K-Stacks. But it doesnt

I get this after doing the modprobe (snip from dmesg):

ndiswrapper version 1.5 loaded (preempt=no,smp=no)
ndiswrapper: driver gplus (D-Link,04/09/2004, loaded
PCI: Enabling device 0000:06:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:06:00.0[A] -> Link [LNKD] -> GSI 11 (level,
low) -> IRQ 11
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:06:00.0 to 64
ndiswrapper (miniport_init:767): couldn't initialize device: C0000001

ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:06:00.0 disabled
ndiswrapper: probe of 0000:06:00.0 failed with error -22

possibly a simple acpi-error??
