FWIW, If it helps at all, I'm using for more than a year now a D-link
DWL-AG650 PC-CARD on laptops which I have been working on. It has an
Atheros chipset, and the ath(4) driver works like a charm, on 6.X and
[ pciconf -lv output ]
ath0 at pci4:0:0: class=0x020000 card=0x3a071186 chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
device = 'AR5212, AR5213 802.11a/b/g Wireless Adapter'
class = network
subclass = ethernet
[ dmesg and /var/log/messages output ]
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xffa10000-0xffa1ffff at device 0.0 on cardbus0
ath0: using obsoleted if_watchdog interface
ath0: Ethernet address: 00:11:95:ca:e5:e8
ath0: mac 5.9 phy 4.3 radio 3.6
I got it from a Greek online shop for about 35 euros, and it was one of
the best online buys I've ever done :)
