steve, you are right. Those two might be old.
Though here is the 8.1 supported device list:http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.1R/hardware.html#SUPPORT
Shows all Atheros supported except for a specific one which is not AR9220.
What is the deep down dirty way that I can check in SSH to see if it's really supported or not?Results of: pciconf -l

Using the latest developmental image, in Access mode (b/g), I can see "up" but "n" shows "no carrier". Despite showing up in b and g mode, I can't see the SSID though when I search for it. Could it be due to my 5Mhz antennas?
