If I had to hazard a guess, it's either:

* a verison of the NIC that has some funky support that I haven't seen
yet, and I have to port from ath9k, and/or
* it has rfkill enabled by default somehow, and I have to go fix that.

I know these are expensive, but this is what it's like doing hardware.
:) Matt Dillon @ DragonflyBSD bought me the Asus zenbook so I could
fix the wifi there, and that's why the zenbook works great now.
