atheros supported wireless card not seen under 5.4 release - help

I've been happy with my limited use of FreeBSD and am slowly
propagating it to other machines I can find... :)
I've just installed 5.4 release (generic) onto an older Dell Inspiron
7500 laptop. I'm trying to get a PCMCIA wireless network card
working and having problems.
The card is Atheros based and hence listed as supported under the
harware list (NEC PA-WL/54AG) via ath(4). If I ifconfig the card is
not shown, I only see the loopback.
dmesg shows cardbus0: <network, ethernet> at device 0.0 (no driver
Finally, the card has been shown to work in another laptop under
another OS so I know the hardware is good.
Can anyone give me a few clues where to look that might have a fresh
install not seeing this card?
Thank you -
