First, say away from knetmanger, kwifi.... or any of those. They do not work ( at least for many folks here and myself) and will rot your teeth
For your question of which lspci is correct, the answer is - they both are. 5006X = 5413 As for as the PCI 01.00 or the 02.00; my guess is the different distro's enumerate the pci bus differently, no big deal.
just for comparison, here is my dmesg, lspci on my ThinkPad T42 running 32 bit 3.4e:

First thing is that your system fails attaching wifi to the hardware ( madwifi uses wifi for things that I do not know )
Second is that my driver is 0.9.4 (32 bit) released 8/28) and yours is 0.9.3.2. Try to
- Code: Select all
emerge -u madwifi-ng
So the AR5413 is an extended range 20dBm of power non-super card ( 54Mbps) known as AR5006X in Atheros land. No comment on this card in madwifi.org There is a AR5006XS mentions and it says it ' works with madwifi-r1352-20051208 '. You may want to try back leveling if the 0.9.4 driver does not help.
Other than that, try help at madwifi.org or the irc channel #madwifi
Good Luck, let us know how it works out.
Madwifi.org mentions live cds that work 'out of the box' with atheros. Some include AR5006X. You may want to try one.http://madwifi.org/wiki/LiveCDs
