Ok so i recently upgraded from debian stable(lenny) to debian testing(squeeze) and I wanted i was reinstalling all of my old drivers, settings, applications, etc. starting with my wireless internet. I built and installed my madwifi source( i have the source in a .tar.gz file not from a repository) and modprobed ath_pci as I am supposed and everything seemed to be going fine except when i rebooted the computer ath0 and wifi0 still havent show up and wlan0 is still there...
here is the output from my iwconfig
