I've been testing ath5k, and it seems to work fine on open networks 
(no encryption).  However, even a simple WEP key didn't work when I 
tried it earlier this week.  This was configuring wireless the old, 
manual way with NM and wpa_supplicant stopped:

iwconfig wifi0 enc <KEY>
iwconfig wifi0 enc restricted
dhclient wifi0

I tried "open" as well as "restricted", and nothing worked.  When I 
switched back to madwifi, it all works, even with NM.
