Yes, Madwifi doesn't support this chipset. Ti solve this problem you can manually port support from compat-wireless or BSD ieee80211 stack (i mean hal-modules). Or hire someone to do it for you :)
For now it is better to use compat-wireless ath9k modules in such device it has the same possibilities and even more (look at openwrt).

When I study openCapwap, it requires a PC have a wireless card with Atheros chipset and MadWifi driver installed.
And I followed MadWifi 'First Time User' HOWTO until last step Loading the MadWifi Module:
After running this command ifconfig doesn't show the additional wireless interface even after I reboot Ubuntu.
After I googled and went through MadWifi userdocs, I think maybe MadWifi do not support AR992X chipsets?
And If so, is any workaround?
