Oddball Atheros card causing problems.

After literally weeks (!) of trying to get a wireless card working in
Master mode on my machine, I did what I should have done on day 1 and
type lspci -v.  This is the relevant block (bold is my emphasis):

                0000:01:09.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros
                Communications, Inc.: Unknown device 001a (rev 01)
                        Subsystem: Atheros Communications, Inc.: Unknown
                device 1052
                        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168,
                IRQ 201
                        Memory at f8420000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
                        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2

So, this card is an unknown device which the networking tools
kind-of-partially-but-not-quite-sort-of know what to do with.  I've had
it working in Managed mode just fine, but I can't get it working in
Master mode at all.  What's the usual next step when you find a piece of
oddball hardware like this?
