Exactly the same configuration running here...
The web-configuration utility ( says:
Driver  Vendor    Version
net5211 %ATHEROS% 09/12/2003,

Maybe the shipped driver is a bit older? I usually update winXP
very often...

My installation of SuSE first used driverloader with the
IBM a/b/g as wlan0. After the next boot, it went on eth0.
This was confusing.
