      TP Link Wireless cards use Atheros.

      You might want to check this out:
      http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_chipset.php?chipset=Atheros
      http://linux-wless.passys.nl/query_part.php?brandname=TP-Link

      You can search by chipset/manufacturer/brand etc. And you can check if
      there is support in linux.

      I'm not sure about 'master mode' though.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,
      Ram
