Intel Pro Wireless 5300 AGN problems with the iwlagn driver

I need some help. After trying to install aircrack-ng and installing the compat-wireless-2.6.30 drivers with the patches (in the link below), I totally lost my wireless card options. I totally lost the option to choose "enable wireless" in the NetworkManager options.

I tried to go back to the original drivers and still nothing. I tried to do a clean install of the Intel drivers but still nothing.

# lshw -C network
*-network UNCLAIMED

       product: PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection

# iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

# lspci | grep Wireless

Any ideas?
