That means that the card should be supported by the ath5k wireless driver
if it was correctly initialized by the cardbus drivers.

I happen to have a similar PCMCIA card (from a different vendor: Trust)
that has the same PCI ID and works without problems.

I don't think I can help you any further. Hopefully one of the PCMCIA
developers can. One last suggestion could be to enable the PCMCIA_DEBUG
option in the kernel and activate that as documented in the Kconfig help
for that option. Suggest you use a current kernel if you do that.

Good luck,
