wicd says No Wireless Networks Found, ongoing problem


I have a TL-WN722N usb wireless card connected to my slackware 13.37 system. The original problem was that the new firmware was not recognized. So I compiled and installed the latest stable linux 3.0.4, and the firmware is now recognized. But wicd still says there are no wireless networks to be found, and this is the output of iwconfig.
Code:
root@a:~# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

root@a:~#
Following is the output to
/var/log/messages
pertaining to the recognition of the wireless card (Atheros), driver (ath9k_htc) and network.
Code:

I'm marking this solved, even though it really isn't, because the other card I ordered arrived. installed it and it worked instantly. So in a way, the problem is solved, and I'll put the TP-LINK card on my windows machine, where it does work. For anyone who is interested, the card that works with my slackware 13.37 is an Alfa AWUS036H

Sadly, being built for Windows is a problem that can't be fixed with certain hardware.
