When I got System->Administration->Hardware Drivers Support fo 5xxx series Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards says a different version of this driver is in use. Earlier this week enabling the driver got it working but that's not the case anymore. At one point I tried installing the windows drivers when that didn't work I removed them...

Help appreciated.
