RE: help with ath9k wifi card
Try to build using this command line:

make bin/ipxe.iso DEBUG=ath9k_ani,ath9k_ar5008_phy,ath9k_ar9002_calib,ath9k_ar9002_hw,ath9k_ar9002​_mac,ath9k_ar9002_phy,ath9k_ar9003_calib,ath9k_ar9003_eeprom,ath9k_ar9003_hw,ath​9k_ar9003_mac,ath9k_ar9003_phy,ath9k,ath9k_calib,ath9k_common,ath9k_eeprom_4k,at​h9k_eeprom_9287,ath9k_eeprom,ath9k_eeprom_def,ath9k_hw,ath9k_init,ath9k_mac,ath9​k_main,ath9k_recv,ath9k_xmit

This should enable debug for all the files related to the ath9k driver, which should hopefully give you something useful. It should be all one long line. These names are from the .c files in src/drivers/net/ath/ath9k/.

But if you boot and ifstat reports nothing, or at least not any Atheros-related hardware, then you don't have the correct driver loaded in your binary, or there is something strange going on with the PCI vendor/device IDs.

Once you have an atheros device listed by ifstat you should be able to use iwlist to find the SSID and use "set ssid XXX" and "set key YYY", followed by ifopen to associate with you wifi network. At that point a dhcp command should give you an IP address (if your SSID+key is correct).
