I assume PCMCIA card?
If you can find a Netgear WP511T it uses madwifi being Atheros based.

Also see what you can find and then browse the HCL section here at the top and right. Look up the card and model an revision number. Seen many cards have the same number but have had as many as 3 different chipsets. One even the same revision but 2 different chipsets. One came made in one country and the other in a different country.
