I just installed Fedora 8 on my laptop - an older Sony - with a Belkin
(Atheros chip) pcmcia wifi card and it works out of the box - well, it
did take a little tweaking.

Here is my lspci for comparison:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212
802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Belkin Unknown device 3010
	Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr-
Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
	Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort-
<TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
	Latency: 168 (2500ns min, 7000ns max), Cache Line Size: 128 bytes
	Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 9
	Region 0: Memory at 34000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
	Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
		Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1- D2- AuxCurrent=375mA
PME(D0-,D1-,D2-,D3hot-,D3cold-)
		Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=2 PME-

Fedora saw my card during the boot process but didn't obtain an IP
address. I had to set the wireless channel to match my router and start
the NetworkManager service. The data light on the card doesn't blink
when sending or receiving data but other than that, everything seems ok.
