I hear the Madwifi drivers are good for atheros cards. Try googleing for that.

Hope that Helped

My PCMCIA card has an atheros chipset, and the explanations on the MadWiFi page and FAQ were spot-on.

And, if nothing else, check the HCL to see what others had to do to get your specific card working.

Happy WANning.

A 3rd vote for MadWiFi. Works great on my laptop with an Atheros-based PCMCIA card. The only thing to remember is to reinstall it every time you update the kernel (read: keep the source).
