Is the driver getting loaded? Check the output of 'lsmod' for 'madwifi' (if that's what it's called). If not there you could try loading manually with 'modprobe madwifi' (as root).

If you google AR5212 you will see there are a few issues with this hardware and linux.

Still, first thing would be to make sure driver is loaded and device recognised.

I have that chip:
Code:
03:09.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)
        Subsystem: D-Link System Inc Unknown device 3a1b
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 168, IRQ 17
        Memory at fdde0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
No driver for this comes with F7, since it requires a proprietary binary module. I downloaded the Madwifi source code from the Madwifi site and compiled it on my Fedora 6 system. No problem. If you don't want to do that, you should look on the Livna rpm repository for an rpm Madwifi package that matches the version of the kernel you're running.
