I have a Dell Vostro A840 - having atheros wifi card and unfortunately ubuntu 8.04 doesn't support the driver i.e the restricted driver - by default it supports madwifi (Multiband Atheros Driver for Wireless Fidelity) driver but the HAL part is closed.

Good news ath5k is open every where - so go ahead and have a peak

Happy hacking
