Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Which distro/version are you using? That would likely help folks help you.
Searching "Atheros AR242x 802.11abg Linux" turns up a lot of stuff, but much of it is related to specific distros and versions. Searching "Atheros AR242x 802.11abg [your distro]" might do the trick.
A request: When you post the output of commands, please surround it in "code" tags, which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button beneath the post text entry window. It makes it much easier to read.
Firstly, as suggested, please edit your post using code tags. It makes console output easier to read, prevents MAC address's turning into a barrage of emoticons, and places the output in a scrollable text field, that makes reduces the overall size of a post and makes it easier to read.
This isn't a driver problem, as the wireless interface (wlan0) is showing in the output of iwconfig. So what exactly isn't working?
What have you tried to get it working?
How are you trying to configure the wlan0 interface?
What is bringing you unstuck?
Thirdly, when posting the output of commands such as lspci/lsusb etc, please cut out the irrelevant information, it save us (the people trying to help you) from having to sift though a bunch of crap that doesn't matter, in order to find the info that MIGHT matter.
