Wow, lucky the card I bought last week was a rev1.1!  I would imagine
the rev2.0 card would be using different firmware - I assume you've
correctly installed the firmware for the rev1.1 card?  If that doesn't
work, you could try extracting the firmware from the Windows driver,
assuming that's where Chris got it from in the first place.

This is what dmesg reports when I initialise the card:

xc2028 2-0061: Loading firmware for type=BASE F8MHZ (3), id
xc2028 2-0061: Loading firmware for type=D2620 DTV7 (88), id
xc2028 2-0061: Loading SCODE for type=DTV7 ZARLINK456 SCODE (22000080),
   id 0000000000000000.
xc2028 2-0061: Device is Xceive 3028 version 1.0, firmware version 2.7

With this firmware:

$ ls /lib/firmware/
total 48K
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   92 2008-02-23 11:54 .
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 8.0K 2008-02-23 23:38 ..

What does yours say?
