What wireless card did they put in?

My Feisty install has their Atheros card which has a few problems but
mostly works.  Something in the network manager/madwifi causes Network
Manager to often report the card is disconnected and then re-connects,
and I also get panics "Dazed and Confused" (unexpected NMI IIRC)
which brings down the network until I reboot.  I've heard reports that
those two problems go away with Gutsy.
