Any WLAN card supported by ath9k should be usable for this. However,
please note that older hardware revisions (including AR5416) require
use of software encryption/decryption when using IEEE 802.11w at least
for the time being. In other words, you will need to load the driver
with nohwcrypt=1 module parameter.
