No wireless networks are detected -- Atheros AR2413 ath5k
Binary package hint: network-manager
My wireless card stopped working on Karmic a few days ago. This problem was present on Lucid but it has been fixed. At first I thought that it was a hardware problem but since after updating Lucid it worked I figured it is a bug.
When I click on the NM Icon I only get options for wired networks as if my wireless card didn't exist.
