The card is atheros 1083.
Are you using the 2.6 kernel?
This kernel not recognize the atheros card automatically.
You have 2 options:
1)Install the kernel module "atl1c"
2) Upgrade the kernel to 3.2 or 3.4
I use the Slack 13.37 and 3.4 kernel
But wiht the newest kernel you must to verify what vga card you use, and made some alterations in case to use nouveau or i915 modules.
