PS: It happened here before that I had to plea and beg for any response, so PLEASE(!!) don't let me hang like that this time. I will not troll for your mercy!!! Thanks.
Don't know how much help I'll be for you. Am posting from My Acer aspire One. But I don't run Slitaz.

Looks like you are on the right track installing ath5k driver though.
Does Slitaz also come with Wireless tools
Also can you get Wicd
connection tools for Slitaz as a taz.pkg.
If wondering about how I got my top readout. You can install inxi script in Slitaz as root user in terminal with this command.
cd /usr/local/bin && wget -Nc smxi.org/inxi && chmod +x inxi
I have inxi succesfully running in Ubuntu and Puppy Installs. smxi comes stock in my AntiX installs, but smxi is a debian thing. Won't work in Ubuntu or Puppy. But inxi will.
At least inxi will let you know if you got ath5k installed correctly like in my readout. I usually install AntiX 8.5 on my Netbooks.
Asus EEEPC 701SD internal drive install
SD card install of AntiX 2 Usb Persistent
Full install on My Asus EEEpc 900
And I settled for Ubuntu Netbook (boot into Gnome instead of Netbook Desktop via sessions in GDM login Window) for my Acer Aspire One (run Puppeee 4.4 Beta on SD card also)
Maybe all you need to do is get something like Wireless Tools going and dhclient to connect. Wicd or Ceni is good front end for wireless tools.
Like I said. Aint much help with Slitaz or Wireless even. So if I am off base. Oh Well. Took a while to type all this out.
Happy Trails ,Rok
