You might be able to cross off a few of the problems on that list.  I
have an Inspiron E1705.  The media card reader (a Ricoh) works quite
well with FC6 (for FC5 I had to play around with hal and load some
modules manually to make it work smoothly).  The only cards I've put
into it are SD cards -- which might not be what you have a need to

The Intel 3945 card works great with Network Manager here, connecting
to a WPA2 Personal AP.

I've yet to try the microphone so I couldn't say if it works or not.

Are there particular errors you get from the card reader or from the
wireless card with Network Manager?
