I have tried multiple things but not able to make wireless work. I am attaching the output from the lshw -C network command.

*-network DISABLED
description: Wireless interface
product: AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter
vendor: Atheros Communications Inc.
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
logical name: wifi0
version: 01
serial: 00:21:63:e6:a3:f4
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz

configuration: broadcast=yes driver=ath_pci latency=0 multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11b
resources: irq:17 memory:d4600000-d460ffff

The network manager shows multiple unknown devices
unknown interface(wifi0)
unknown interface(ath0)

I have tried multiple things and wasted 3-4 hrs without any luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. :o
