They are SDIO devices (not USB or PCI). They need Libertas firmware.
This should work on Debian testing/unstable:
apt-get install linux-image-3.10-2-kirkwood firmware-libertas
It seems the DreamPlug fails to load firmware blob after "warm" reboot,
i.e. needs to be fully powered off and then on again.
