ath5k anyone?

Hey folks,

Has anyone had any luck with the ath5k driver? I've installed
linux-image-2.6.25-2-686. My /etc/network/interfaces file says:

    auto ath0
    iface ath0 inet static
	    wireless_essid <ESSID>
	    wireless_key <KEY>
	    address <ADDRESS>
	    netmask <MASK>
	    gateway <GW>

When I say "ifup ath0", iwconfig reveals that ath0 is associated to my
AP, ifconfig looks right (as it should with a static config). dmesg
looks great too:

    ath5k_pci 0000:02:02.0: registered as 'phy0'
    phy0: Selected rate control algorithm 'pid'
    ath5k phy0: Atheros AR5211 chip found (MAC: 0x42, PHY: 0x30)
    ath5k phy0: RF5111 5GHz radio found (0x17)
    ath5k phy0: RF2111 2GHz radio found (0x23)
    udev: renamed network interface wlan0 to ath0
    ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): ath0: link is not ready
    ath0: Initial auth_alg=0
    ath0: authenticate with AP 02:1e:58:07:5d:f2
    ath0: RX authentication from 02:1e:58:07:5d:f2 (alg=0 transaction=2 status=0)
    ath0: authenticated
    ath0: associate with AP 02:1e:58:07:5d:f2
    ath0: RX AssocResp from 02:1e:58:07:5d:f2 (capab=0x11 status=0 aid=2)
    ath0: associated
    ath0: switched to short barker preamble (BSSID=02:1e:58:07:5d:f2)
    ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): ath0: link becomes ready
    ath0: CTS protection enabled (BSSID=02:1e:58:07:5d:f2)
    ath0: switched to long barker preamble (BSSID=02:1e:58:07:5d:f2)
    ath0: no IPv6 routers present

However, I can't ping my access point.

Do I need some extra magic in /etc/network/interfaces?
