The Atheros AR2425/AR5007EG PCI-E wireless LAN chipset is supported by the
ath5k driver  as of Linux 2.6.27.
As Debian Lenny/5.0 is supplied with Linux 2.6.26, you are required to install
a later kernel version for support of your device. Backported kernel image
packages are available from backports.org .
