Hi all,

Just install FreeBSD 7.2 in my lappy Acer 5050. I checked my Atheros model as below

ath0: <Atheros 2413> mem 0xd0200000-0xd020ffff irq 21 at device 4.0 on pci8                                                                 
ath0: [ITHREAD]                                                                                                                             
ath0: WARNING: using obsoleted if_watchdog interface
