Wireless driver available for testing

Hi,

An alpha release of my Atheros wireless driver is now available for download.

I'll paste the contents of the README file here for convenience:

This is an alpha test release of two components needed to use certain
Atheros PCI-based wireless network adapters with AROS: WirelessManager
and atheros5000.device.

Note that the only encryption methods currently supported are WEP and
WPA(1).

To set up wireless networking, first follow these steps (which are also
valid shell commands):

- Copy atheros5000.device to DEVS:Networks
- Copy WirelessManager to C:
- Copy Wireless.prefs to ENVARC:
- Edit ENVARC:Wireless.prefs
- Copy ENVARC:Wireless.prefs to ENV:

To test your wireless configuration, run the following command in the shell:

WirelessManager atheros5000.device

If a successful connection is reported, you can then configure WirelessManager
to run at boot by adding the following line to S:User-Startup:

Run WirelessManager atheros5000.device >NIL:

Finally, you need to create a wireless interface that uses
atheros5000.device in the Network preferences program. This is done in
the same way as for a wired network.
