The simple, foolproof method for finding Atheros gear is to look for
108 MBps advertised speeds. You don't actually have to use the
proprietary extension to the 802.11g spec, but it's an Atheros
telltale. Just stay away from USB adaptors, which aren't supported by
Madwifi (I don't know about ath5k).
