madwifi supports more hardware than ath5k.

I've got a similar problem as the original post. I wonder how I make sure the madwifi driver is used instead of the ath5k driver.

If the madwifi driver supports more hardware wouldn't it make sense to not use the ath5k driver at all ?

Future development is with ath5k; I surmise it's more likely to work than madwifi for some (probably newer) devices. Fedora aims to provide the latest in open source; madwifi isn't all open source, and ath5k is the latest.
