Default Connecting to router wirelessly

I recently installed OBSD on my laptop, and I'd like to bring it around the house to use it whenever.

The router has WPA2 for wireless security enabled, because I'm mainly concerned about other people connecting to it or maybe even sniffing packets of the information I'm exchanging with the internet wirelessly.

I checked the wireless support section of the Networking documentation on the OBSD website, and I think it said WPA was not supported for ath(4) type wireless cards. (I have a Linksys WPC55AG PCMCIA card.) But I tried to Google some information, and recent posts from 2008 were saying that WPA encryption was functioning on Atheros chip based cards.

I'm not sure how to go about this, but first I'd like to confirm whether or not I can use my wireless card as of now.
