I believe the madwifi driver is what you need.
madwifi is what I use for my Atheros based wifi card -

Atheros Communications Inc. Atheros AR5001X+ Wireless Network Adapter 
(rev 01)

It's a different model than yours.
I build the driver myself, I don't know what repos have it prebuilt but 
I suspect rpmforge probably would.
