Hmm, I also used 2.6.22 in sid, but I never got ath5k running. Sure, it loaded
an saw the device, but I could never get an IP by my router. There is a
bugreport related to this, sent by me.
I am still using the madwifi-drivers, which ran perfectly in 2.6.22 and now
running in 2.6.24.
Hint: Some settings in /etc/network/interfaces are not working, so just leave
them away. Especially leave "wireless_ssid any", as the madwifi-driver does
not know the switch "any" or "auto", although they are working well
I found out (by examing the output og dmesg), that "wireless_mode"
and "wireless_ssid any" are not known by the driver.
Still I could not find out, why !
So, I supppose you installed iwconfig-tools, too.
Maybe you might post the output of "/etc/init.d/networking restart" and the
output of "dmesg", so maybe I can help you more.
Good luck !
