The ath5k driver in 2.6.26 cannot work with the atheros chip in the
Eee. Looking at 2.6.26-rc2 changes, it seems that 2.6.27 may be the
kernel we're waiting for.
ath5k: Add RF2425 initial rfgain values
I am not completely sure that this indeed means adding full support to
the 2425 chip, but it looks like a step in that direction :)
(Disclaimer: I only have experience with model 701)
