There are two revisions of this 802.11g card, based on different chipsets, so there are different drivers. AFAIK, rev. A1 card has less problems with linux driver, while B1 driver still beta.
DWL-G650 rev. A1 (PrismGT chipset) , so you should go http://ruslug.rutgers.edu/~mcgrof/802.11g/ 
DWL-G650 rev. B1 (Atheros chipset) = http://sourceforge.net/projects/madwifi/
