The ath5k driver should have been auto-magically installed and running. (I'm using an HP dv9800 with an Atheros card using the ath5k driver to write this message.)

One "gotcha" with the driver is that it doesn't change the light by the Wifi power switch to blue when the WiFi is working, so it's hard to tell if the switch (cleverly placed where sliding the laptop on your lap can power off the WiFi) is in the "off" position.

Here's what I see in the kernel messages on my laptop:
Code:
