    Try actually giving us some info about the card so we can actually help out.
    lsusb or lspci for starters would be helpful. In the meantime see also:

    Default AW: Atheros Wireless-Adapter Issue

    The atheros 5006EG is a PCI-Card. I recognized the failed Identification at the listed PCI Devices.
    In this list the 5006EG is wrong identified as a Atheros 5001 Card, so i found it out. The Wireless-Adapter also isn't shown at the ifconfig-list and the entry at the PCI Devices List is the only proof of existing from the wireless-adapter.
