    23 MadWIfi is working on providing a driver for users which does not require compiling a wireless-2.6 git kernel. In the meantime if you want to help test the latest driver you will need to compile a recent kernel. If you want to get the very latest then read the [http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath5k hacking ath5k guide] to get ath5k. If you don't want to deal with git then please try out an mm (Andrew Morton) release from [http://kernel.org kernel.org]. You will now find the mm releases have the ath5k driver.
