Atheros PCI wireless card in lspci but not recognized in osx

Hi All,


I've looked at the thread "How to Atheros 5212 cards" and followed the instructions about 10 times but to no avail.


I have a TP-Link TL-wn651g wireless card which is an Atheros 5212 chipset with P168c,13 Vendor ID/Device id


I have downloaded OSX86 tools and it shows it in the LSPCI printout that its an ethernet controller, P168c,13 - However it isn't being shown in System info as either a PCI card or a wireless card.


Like I have said I followed the tutorial.. but maybe I'm missing something easy that I'm just not seeing?


I have a GA-p35-ds3 gigabyte motherboard and am running OSX86 10.5.6 final.


Any help would be great as I have trawled through all the insane mac threads on this card and still have no success.



Btw, the card works fine on Windows and Linux..
