> I think I'm using the new core because a window pops up in terminal when it asks me to add a source. My problem is that the window asks me for "Intf" and "Opts", and I don't know what either of those are. If I have the new core can I still use that command successfully?

Also, you said that ath5k was my adapter type. Can you give me an example of an adapter "type"? I don't quite understand.
