I just picked up a pair of NetGear WG311T PCI cards for two old
machines yesterday - they appear to be working flawlessly.  I've them
running with wpa_supplicant, as well, without issue under 6.0-STABLE.

Supported out of the box with ath.

ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413)
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xfe000000-0xfe00ffff irq 17 at device 2.0 on pci2

Got 'em at CompUSA... was too eager to wait for shipping from NewEgg. :D
