AFAICT, your laptop model contains an Atheros 802.11n PCI-E chipset (168C:002A)
[1].  Support for these chipsets was not included in mainline kernels until
2.6.27-rc3.  The kernel supplied in Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 is 2.6.26.

You are required to install and use a later kernel version for support of your
wireless LAN device.  See http://wiki.debian.org/ath9k for further information.
