Wireless............ Is the Atheros AR 5822 supported in Linux. Can't seem to locate anything via an internet search.

generally good support for atheros

I find no news is good news, nobody complaining means it works, if google was full of hits on it.

Would be full of complaints and work around fixes.

Another gage I use is dates, if I google a piece of hardware, get page full of hits on it, I look for how old the newest post is.

If it is over a year old, good chance the problem was fixed and nobody complaining anymore.

not sure of the specific chip

Keep in mind this is gentoo git-sources kernel version 3.6.0-rc5

CONFIG_ATH5K

Currently the following chip versions are supported:

MAC: AR5211 AR5212

PHY: RF5111/2111 RF5112/2112 RF5413/2413

It's probably this one if it's a pci card

CONFIG_ATH5K_PCI

This adds support for PCI type chipsets of the 5xxx Atheros family.

I have an Atheros in my laptop, but I can't get to it at the moment. If you're interested I can post the info later this afternoon.

Maybe

There's a lot of questionable Atheros and even more questionable RAlink chipsets out there.

The general rule of thumb I follow is that if it takes more than ten minutes to sort it out, I take the card out, set it on fire, and replace it with something made by Intel.

Both the brands mentioned above are somewhat notorious for having no only questionable drivers, but questionable chipset behaviours (like signal and noise levels being reported with the same value... which causes continuous AP-shopping in multi-AP environments).
