Wireless doesnt work after kernel update


Hey guys!
Alright just updated to kernel 2.6.11. My wireless was working fine before the update.
I have an Atheros internal card and have been using the Madwifi driver on fedora core. Just to try and mess around, I tried to install the driver again from src, with the make KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-2.6.11 as root. Which is the way I installed it with kernel 2.6.9.
But now I get the error-MAKE:***No targets specified and no make file found. Stop.
Any tips would be fantastic.
THANKS IN ADVANCE

Did you update the symlinks for kernel and modules version? IF you didn't, run
Code:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.11 /usr/src/linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.11 /lib/modules/2.6.11/build
Then go to the directory where you unpacked the driver sources run "make distclean" and re-run make.
