Ath5K has arrived! (for me)
Hey everyone, just wanted to point out that ath5k seems to be really stable now and I have not had any problems at all with it. I was using MadWifi because I could never get ath5k to work on my device, which is a Belkin card with an Atheros AR2413 chipset. The most awesome thing about ath5k is that you don't have to download anything unless you want to because it's built right into the kernel or you can download it as part of The Linux wireless compatibility package.

Either way, if any of you are using Atheros chipsets with Madwfi, I urge you to try ath5k, here's the link that got me up and running.
