I've just ordered the D-Link DWL-AG650 (802.11a/b/g) which is reported to have the Atheros AR5212 chip.

It'll arrive on Friday so will let you know if it works on my G4 alubook.

Netgear WG511U (a/b/g, Atheros) is reported to work on a TiBook (2005/02/03).

Netgear WG511T (b/g, Atheros) is reported to work on Debian PPC (2004/09/03)

Up to date info on Prism cards is here:

With the difficulty of obtaining older versions of Prism cards, Atheros may be the way to go...
