Ok, sure enough it was there and automatically loading.

...it just isn't working.

- --------------
# modprobe ath5k
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:07.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
ath5k_pci 0000:00:07.0: registered as 'phy1'
ath5k phy1: Atheros AR5213 chip found (MAC: 0x56, PHY: 0x41)
ath5k phy1: RF2112A 2GHz radio found (0x46)
udev: renamed network interface wlan0 to ath0
~
# ifup ath0
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): ath0: link is not ready
- ---------------

Although ifconfig and iwconfig show the interface as up, it's not
connecting.

I'll go check out the threads on the
http://madwifi.org/wiki/About/ath5k site.

Well, bugger-all, sure enough the AR5213 isn't listed as working.

That means I have to wait for Bug#463353: madwifi-source to be
resolved.

Heavy sigh. Thank you.
