Yes.. thanks for correcting.

I purchased the 802.11a/b/g AR5004:5213+5112. I have not been able to
test the 802.11a... but b/g work just fine. For whatever reason
(someone may be able to answer) the card is detected as 5212a/b/g by
ath. Works fine so I'm happy.

The prices I was quoted when I purchased:
Cost for the modules are:
Part Number Description Qty Price
T60H835.00 802.11a/b/g Mini - PCI Module 1 - 9 pcs
(Atheros:AR5213+AR5112) 40 pcs $55.00
T60H786.00 802.11b/g Mini - PCI Module 1 - 9 pcs
(Atheros:AR5213+AR2112) 40 pcs $45.00
They (Chris Bartlett) were nice enough to give me the 40pc price for a
DO NOTE: They told me they do not do returns... also.. there was no
packing. They reached into a closed with thousands of them... wrapped
the miniPCI in bubble wrap and handed it to me. So there may be no
docs/support or anything. They apparently sell to OEM. I didn't need
anything but the card... so it didn't bother me.
