In Sid, with kernel 2.6.26, I just uninstalled completely madwifi (if 
installed from the source, type 'make uninstall' in the source 
directory) and mawifi-tools. When I rebooted, the wifi was reconized, 
the module ath5k was probed and I had ath0... I had no need to put it in 
But then, I was unable to use the wifi: it couldn't find any network... 
Any idea about how to get it working?
