Default ATH not loaded during boot time??

Hi everyone. I am currently trying to figure out the wireless card issue that I am dealing with on my T61.

I read through http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/...-wireless.html and followed the procedures outlined:

1) I modified my /boot/loader.conf such that it now has

2) I am still using my GENERIC kernel.

When I start my computer I notice the following in my dmesg:
ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF241, RF5413)
I looked up my specifications and found that my driver under linux is Madwifi. I have read somewhere that madwifi uses the atheros driver.

When I ifconfig, all I can see is em0, fwe0 fwip0 and lo0 and I can't seem to find ath0 or wlan0. How can this be?

How should I diagnose this problem?

BTW my chipset is 11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless LAN Mini-PCIe .
