  wlan0 Success with Broadcom
Switching my card from the Linksys with RaLink chipset to one with a Broadcom chipset did the trick for getting wirelessly connected. I couldnt' find information on any current PCI cards that use the Orinoco or Prism chipset. Broadcom thankfully provides 64 bit drivers, downloadable through LinuxAnt.

With a new Belkin F5D7000 and Generic broadcom 64 bit Windows drivers the wireless link is up.
