Anyone have these cards or chipsets???

I have a Proxim 8461-05 card packed with a Atheros AR2111A AR5111A AR5211A chipset. I'm curious if anyone else may have these same ones or any of the listed cards below:

Atheros AR5001X+
IBM Dual Band 802.11a/b
Lancom AirLancer MC-54AB
Netgear WAB501
Nortel 2201

I don't, but have you checked through the Hardware Compatibility List? (See HCL at the top of the screen)

Atheros wireless NIC chips are compatible in Linux and they should not have any problems. Look up MadWifi.
