I was in the same problem after an update some days ago.
I make many changes triying to bringh the ahteros work again, but i
cant remember the exact comands :(
all the instruction i use where found in the wiki
(http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC) in several pages.
i think some of the steps of the solution was:
echo "pciehp" >> /etc/modules
echo "options pciehp pciehp_force=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/pciehp
m-a m-i madwifi or madwifi-source
