lshw -C network shows USB wifi disabled?

[Ubuntu 9.10]

Good evening guys..
Hopefully you can help me with my problem.. I was using my usb Alfa AWUS036H-v5 usb wifi card, and then after I rebooted, it randomly stopped working.. did some searching on the site, one idea was to do

sudo lshw -C network

which I did, and it shows my internal wifi card (iwl3945) working fine, but says my wlan7 (Alfa usb) as:

network* Disabled

Also, in the upper right hand corner, the antenna is greyed out and says "Device Not Ready"

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance!!
