Let me get this straight: You have 2 DWL-650+'s and 2 laptops, right ?
Do both cards work in the one laptop ?
Do both cards NOT work in the 2nd laptop ?
One of the cards works in only one of the laptops ?

One possibility is that the slot is damaged.
Another is that the W'98 installation is damaged. This happens as a certainty over time with '98. A reinstall should be the next move if you really want to try to use the adapter.

Which OS are you running ? Does it match what the label says ?
If the CD says it supports your version of '98 then I suspect a hardware incompatibility - just what you heard.
A new adapter is not that expensive.
ASUS WL-107G IEEE802.11g Wireless Cardbus Adapter
BUFFALO WLI-CB-G54S AirStation Wireless-G Has the best compatibility (84% 5-egg rating!)
BUFFALO WLI-CB-G54HP Wireless Notebook Adapter
These wirless cards should all be compatible with your PC. Keep in mind that all PCMCIA/CardBus devices have incompatibility problems with some laptops - that's just the way it is.
Check you wireless router or access point for 803.11a and/or 803.11g capability. Make sure the wireless card can support that mode.
