More info on Atheros card from the Madwif sources.
There are currently three "programming generations" of Atheros 802.11
wireless devices (some of these have multiple hardware implementations
but otherwise appear identical to users):
5210 supports 11a only
5211 supports both 11a and 11b
5212 supports 11a, 11b, and 11g
These parts have been incorporated in a variety of retail products
including Cardbus cards from D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, Orinoco, Proxim,
and 3Com; and mini-pci cards from some of these same vendors. In
addition, many laptop vendors use Atheros mini-pci cards for their
built-in wireless support.
