Is there a bug in the ath manual page then?

     Netgear WAG311       AR5212    PCI        a/b/g
     Netgear WAB501       AR5211    CardBus    a/b
     Netgear WAG511       AR5212    CardBus    a/b/g
     Netgear WG311        AR5212    PCI        b/g
     Netgear WG511T       AR5212    CardBus    b/g

It clearly says that the WG311 is an atheros chipset.

Hmm, it looks like someone in the know could do with reviewing the ath
manual page.
