Similar problem; I have an IBM Thinkpad 42p with Cisco aironet minipci
350 (built into laptop).

Upon booting kernel 2.6.15-23-686, the airo module is loaded but does
not detect the card. Here's what I get from dmesg:

[4294695.574000] airo:  Probing for PCI adapters
[4294695.679000] airo: Found an MPI350 card
[4294696.703000] airo: Couldn't register_netdev
[4294696.705000] airo:  Finished probing for PCI adapters

But my ethernet (e1000) works just fine.

After logging in, I can run these commands:

$ sudo modprobe -r airo
$ sudo modprobe airo

And now the aironet card is detected and DHCP works just fine. The card
now works.

This time, dmesg shows this:

[4294786.961000] airo:  Probing for PCI adapters
[4294786.962000] ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:02.0[A] -> Link [LNKC] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11

[4294787.916000] airo: MAC enabled eth1 0:e:9b:cb:d4:de
