Doesn't look like your atheros network card has been detected by your 
system.

Did you check the ath(4) man page to see if your particular piece of 
hardware is supported on FreeBSD 8.3?
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=ath&sektion=4&manpath=FreeBSD+8.3-RELEASE
HARDWARE
      The ath driver supports all Atheros Cardbus and PCI cards, except 
those
      that are based on the AR5005VL chipset.

I'm running:
box0=; uname -a
FreeBSD box0.my.domain 9.1-RC2 FreeBSD 9.1-RC2 #0 r241133: Tue Oct 2 
17:11:45 UTC 2012 
root@obrian.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

And my atheros card is supported.

box0=; dmesg | grep ath
ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0xd6000000-0xd600ffff irq 16 at device 0.0 
on pci2
ath0: AR2425 mac 14.2 RF5424 phy 7.0
