SOLVED on 2 machines!

I tryed ALL things including recompiling drivers etc..

On Ubuntu 10.04(ath5k on Acer One) i solved with:
- (for a temporary solution) try the rfkill thingy(rmmmod ath5k;rfkill block all;rfkill unblock all;modprobe ath5k;rfkill unlock all;ifconfig wlan0 up)
- finally solved by recompiling drivers(downloaded from realtek website - version RTL8192SE)

On Backtrack 4(ath9k on eee PC) i solved with:
-TAKE A LOOK AT THE DARN BIOS AND TURN ON THE WLAN OPTION!
(on eee PC press F2 at boot)
