The ath(4) manpage says:

  NAME
       ath -- Atheros IEEE 802.11 wireless network driver

  SYNOPSIS
       To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
       kernel configuration file:

             device ath
             device ath_hal
             device ath_rate_sample
             device wlan

       Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
       following line in loader.conf(5):

             if_ath_load="YES"
[...]


You will also need the various wlan_xxx options you list above if you wish
to use WPA and/or WEP.  (Using WPA is strongly recommended.)
