I used Fedora on this computer since Fedora 16 and every single one supported this WiFi card with open source driver. CentOS 7 is based on Fedora 19, I remember this card working with Fedora 19. But in CentOS 7 it doesn't work. When I boot to Fedora 21 on other partition, it works. Heck, I even remember Trisquel working on this computer with all free firmware and drivers.
So, why is this driver removed? How do I put it back?

I believe this device requires the ath5k driver. Red Hat removed the ath5k driver from RHEL7.
You can get the driver from elrepo.org. Set up the elrepo repository then do:
yum install kmod-ath5k
