Steps needed to get my Atheros AR5005G wireless card working in debian. This is for the madwifi drivers.

  • Enable non-free and contrib in /etc/apt/sources.lsit
  • Install module-assistant madwifi-source madwifi-tools madwifi-doc wireless-tools and the headers for the curent kernel (they will be in a module of the form linux-headers-|kernel version|)
  • Run m-a a-i madwifi-source to compile and install the module against the current kernel
  • Run modprobe ath_pci or reboot

Wireless should now work
