For your network card, try:

lspci -k

In the host; this will give you the module used to support your card. If it
say something like ath5k.ko (or something similar), look in the Makefile of
drivers/net/ (in the kernel sources) for the corresponding entry ath5k.c and
you'll have the correct setting to enter in the kernel configuration.

Look also in the staging directory.
