Just a note to say that my wireless PCI card works flawlessly, but is not mentioned in the manpage of ath. It's a rev. B2 of a D-Link G520. The best string to describe it would be:

D-Link DWL-G520B2     AR5212    PCI        b/g

output from pciconf -vl:

ath0 at pci0:20:0: class=0x020000 card=0x3a131186 chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
    device   = 'AR5212, AR5213 802.11a/b/g Wireless Adapter'
    class    = network
    subclass = ethernet

Add the following line to "man ath":

D-Link DWL-G520B2     AR5212    PCI        b/g
