For W510 and other Nehalem-based ThinkPads, there is no Atheros WLAN card  
authorized by Lenovo's original BIOS. So if you want to install Atheros  
cards, you have to remove the BIOS's whitelist restriction.

If you don't wish to purchase another laptop, consider purchasing an  
ath9k-htc USB card. You can pick one from wikidevi.com. Search for AR7010 or  
AR9271. Beware the hardware revision, though.
