Atheros AR5005G with madwifi

I just bought an Acer Aspire 5100-3357 laptop and put debian etch on it. It has an Atheros wifi card with the AR5005G chipset as far as I've been able to establish. I installed madwifi and ran modprobe ath_pci and got the following from dmesg:

ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
wlan: (0.9.3)
ath_rate_sample: 1.2 (0.9.3)
ath_pci: (0.9.3)
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:02:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 225
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:02:00.0 to 64
wifi%d: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware didn't respond as expected' (HAL status 3)
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:02:00.0 disabled

Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix this?
