driver for atheros 802.11 wireless

I have just installed ELX 4.0 on my toshiba A70 laptop and love it. The only problems Is I cannot acces the internet. I don't have a driver for either the modem or the wireless card. I have found a link on the internet to get a Linux driver for my Atheros 802.11 wireless card (MADWIFI), but when I click on it to download it at sourceforge it tells me there are no files for it. Does anyone know of an alternate location for the download?
