    Sorry (As this probably sounds stupid), but where is the Network Setup program? I can't seem to be able to find it.

    For the Gnome desktop, go here:

    System --> Administration --> Network

    Having just looked at one of your previous posts in this thread, i've just realized, i've forgotten to blacklist the ath_pci module, i'll go try that now.

    Was it loading at boot?
    Code:
    lsmod

    Hi again,

    I think it's just getting to the point where i should give up and stop annoying you.

    Thanks for all the help!

    The only thing that is annoying me right now is that I haven't gotten ANY Atheros cards to work for anybody! There must be something that I am missing.

    I don't know if I mentioned this already, but some cards need to first be started by Windows before they will work in Linux. Did you use it in Windows before installing Ubuntu? If you are dual booting Windows/Ubuntu, boot into Windows and connect with the wireless card. Then shut down Windows without first disconnecting the wireless, and boot into Ubuntu.

    The other thing, some cards are controlled by the BIOS. Enter the BIOS at boot and look for any options for the wireless. One option to try is to set it to Wake-On-LAN, and it should initialize the wireless when there is a connection present. It does seem like the wireless is "turned off", don't you agree?

    If you want to pursue this further, I would go back to trying the madwifi or ath5k drivers. You can find more help from the developers of these drivers. I posted a link earlier to the Madwifi page concerning your wireless. It did say to use the latest version, that would be the Subversion repository version. They also have several mailing lists for communicating with users and developers. They work the same as a forum, except it is through e-mail.
