    Here is exactly what I did, step by step.
    First, lsmod.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# lsmod | grep -i ath9k
    ath9k                 154391  0 
    ath9k_htc              95301  0 
    mac80211              612653  2 ath9k,ath9k_htc
    ath9k_common           13606  2 ath9k,ath9k_htc
    ath9k_hw              428784  3 ath9k,ath9k_htc,ath9k_common
    ath                    23032  4 ath9k,ath9k_htc,ath9k_common,ath9k_hw
    cfg80211              526534  4 ath9k,ath9k_htc,mac80211,ath
    compat                 24704  6 ath9k,ath9k_htc,mac80211,ath9k_common,ath9k_hw,cfg80211
    Then, unplugged adapter and ran these:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# modprobe -rf ath9k
    root@bt:~# modprobe -rf ath9k_htc
    root@bt:~# rfkill unblock all 
    root@bt:~# modprobe ath9k_htc
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    Then, plugged adapter back in and tried to start wicd and networking.
    Still nothing. Then unplugged adapter and ran these:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# cat /boot/config-3.2.6 | grep -i config_ath
    CONFIG_ATH_COMMON=m
    # CONFIG_ATH_DEBUG is not set
    CONFIG_ATH5K=m
    # CONFIG_ATH5K_DEBUG is not set
    # CONFIG_ATH5K_TRACER is not set
    CONFIG_ATH5K_PCI=y
    CONFIG_ATH9K_HW=m
    CONFIG_ATH9K_COMMON=m
    CONFIG_ATH9K=m
    CONFIG_ATH9K_PCI=y
    CONFIG_ATH9K_AHB=y
    CONFIG_ATH9K_DEBUGFS=y
    CONFIG_ATH9K_RATE_CONTROL=y
    CONFIG_ATH9K_HTC=m
    CONFIG_ATH9K_HTC_DEBUGFS=y
    CONFIG_ATH6KL=m
    # CONFIG_ATH6KL_DEBUG is not set
    root@bt:~# reboot
    Then, plugged adapter back in.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# startx
    Disconnected adapter, then:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# modprobe -rf ath9k
    root@bt:~# modprobe -rf ath9k_htc
    root@bt:~# rfkill unblock all
    root@bt:~# modprobe ath9k_htc
    root@bt:~# service networking start 
    networking stop/waiting
    root@bt:~# service wicd start
     * Starting Network connection manager wicd                              [ OK ] 
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    root@bt:~#
    I am baffled. I really have no idea what could be causing this.
    Thanks a ton for trying to help me out!

    I don't know how attached you are to Backtrack, but I solved this problem by installing Kali instead. It worked out of the box for me.
