Atheros Wireless cards

Ok, I had a wireless card issue and Icaros refused to boot anymore with it attached. So I found another card, an AR5B97 802.11bgn 300Mbs card. I have done all I knew from installing my last card, but WirelessManager says "Failed to initialize driver interface". Does that mean it's not compatible? Or is there a way to enter the cards details? I also have an AR5B95 which is a 150Mbps card. That one says the same thing.

I have gone into PCITools and I do see the card.

PCITools see the card because it's plugged in pci slot :)

We need to know the vendor ID et the Product ID returned by PCITools, with that wee can see if the kernel support it.

Yes, I know this. It would not see the card if the card does not function. I have a large inventory of used computer parts, So seeing it in PCItools means it does work.

I would like to know if we can use the Vendor ID and product ID to add it to the atheros5000.driver. Like Mac OSX. Or if there is another way of getting WirelessManager to recognize it.
