I recently switched from madwifi to driverloader for a supported card
because I found the madwifi driver to be somewhat unstable especially
when connecting through my Asus WL330 pocket access point when

I'm using an integrated Atheros 5211 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100
notebook running Fedora Core 1.
