    Default atheros driver problem

    Hi,

    I have atheros wifi hardware and i don't see my interface.
    With modinfo i can see ath9k module is in bt4 and airdriver-ng say that madwifi driver is installed.
    Anybody know why i can't see my interface in iwconfig?


    airdriver-ng detect
    --------------------------
    Found "Madwifi[-ng]" device: (ath_pci)
    02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

    PCI devices (generic detection):
    02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)


    airdriver-ng installed
    -----------------------------
    Found following drivers installed:
    16. Madwifi[-ng] - IEEE80211


    iwconfig
    ------------
    lo no wireless extensions.
    eth0 no wireless extensions.


    Thanks
