    Ubuntu shows support for my card yet i can't use?

    Ok, I have had ubuntu for about a month now but i'm still stuck on windows. The reason is i'm not able to use the internet on ubuntu. Mbarak has helped me a lot and we have gone all the way around back to square one. I have an atheros chipset and i have came to find out madwifi is already installed on ubuntu and it does show support under restricted drivers. However the i'm not able to use the wifi when i try to scan via terminal it just tells me that l0 & eth0 do not support scanning it says nothing about my wireless card. I have tried thee following commands in the terminal to get the wireless running

    sudo modprobe ath_pci (no problems running)
    sudo ifconfig ath0 up (device error)

    Some more information
    I have a easynote r1005
