Default Atheros 5214 will it work on Freebsd 7

Hi,

Im trying to some research for a buddy's laptop. he wanted to try FreeBSd7 but cant seem to get his wireless running. I found out that his wireless adapeter uses the atheros 5214.

I tried googling I only found references for atheros 5212 and below. can anyone confirm if atheros 5214 is indeed having problems with freebsd 7?

Many thanks.

With the latest ath_hal of Sam and a rebuild of the kernel you can make most of the Atheros revisions work.
