As you can probably tell by how late this response is, I've been
moving forward on this project VERY slowly.

Thanks. However, I've found it pretty hard to determine what chipset
a particular wireless NIC uses based on its packaging (or even by
looking at the circuit board), so finding one that I know in advance
uses a particular chipset is proving to be difficult.
Any recommendations for how to find a wireless NIC with a particular
chipset (in this case, Atheros)?
