dlink g650 revision b. i think its a 5211 or 5212.

im running turbo-g 108mbp to my dlink router.
(i know the ath hal doesnt yet support 108mb...)
I guess the 5212, I have a G650 for myself. The problem is that for
my card, the Atheros HAL from FreeBSD segfaulted. I'll commit the
driver from FreeBSD 5 + Reyk's HAL for the 5210, if anyone has
such a card and can use it.

sweet mate!

i think my cvs is running current (default tag=.)..
ive poked around, i think your right that its a 5212.
some info says hardware g650-b1 was ra5211
and g650-b2/b3/b4 was 5212. im unsure about C revision g650's.
i think they are stil 5212 but some people say they are
different again.....
Yes, I think you're right. My revision C doesn't work with the ath 
driver, and I get some odd 6mbps connection with the ndis driver. 
Actually.. the ath driver nearly works. It'll keep searching, sometimes 
it will get a connection with my access point for a split second but 
then it'll drop again and keep searching. It managed to stay connected 
for like 30 seconds once or twice, but that's about it :)

then youhave A1 reivisions on the prism chipset :)

isnt wireless fun!
