Thanks, this probably wouldn't be such an issue if I hadn't thrown away
the box two-three weeks ago (at least, I think I threw it out; I've had
the card for about a two years).

none3 at pci0:2:2:0: class 0x20000 card=0x1faa11ab chip=0x00351033 rev=0x43
	vendor = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology LLC)'
	device = 'Marvell Libertas 02.llb/g Wireless (8335)'
	class = network
	subclass = ethernet

I can't find any wlan modules in /boot/kernel that aren't already loaded.
