Sounds like you picked up a card that isn't supported by hal-info yet.
Do you have the make / model? If so, submit a bug against hal-info with
as much info about the card as you can get.

I did that just as F10 came out for the AT&T Laptop Connect Mercury (A
Sierra Wireless card) that wasn't recognized. It seems that hal-info
finally was updated to include it this past week. It's working like a
champ now...
