Hello ztdep,

do you mean you have a router TPlink 340g which is not configured, and an USB-wireless device?

Well, I did understand that you had not even the router installed. But if the router is your wireless-accesspoint and is working, you'll have to find out which driver (module) you will need for your usb-wireless card.
In order to check this you'll have to execute
Code:
lsusb
as root, post the output here and as well please provide more information: all you know about your usb-wireless card (vendor, chipset...), which encryption does your wireless network use.
Maybe the wireless-card is working already, please post the output of iwconfig and ifconfig as well.

Hi, the apropriate module for the atheros-chip isn't loaded (I assume).

please execute
Code:
lsmod | grep ath
if this returns nothing, you may try as root
Code:
modprobe ath9k
in order to load the module. If the commands shows no output, the module is loaded and you may try
Code:
iwconfig
again in order to see if the wireless device is recognized by your system.
