Bug Description

This is the same question found here but I'm working on Jaunty.
https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/50808

I did a clean install of Jaunty and updated with all the latest updates.

I notices through google that many users had problems with the wifi button on the keyboard. Seems not to be active on linux.
There is a built-in wifi card of Atheros. Can't tell which it is, you might check the specification for this model.
Tried with madwifi and without...
I noticed that anytime there is a new update on Jaunty, I need to configure everything again. Now after new updates, my wifi is totally gone.

Hope someone can help me out on this or it might be usefull to have it standard for all the Ubuntu users that are working with Atheros wifi built-in cards.

          Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

pan0 no wireless extensions.
