FC5:ifconfig sees ath0 but system-config-network sees wifi0



Hi:

Hoping for a little guidance.

PCMCIA wireless card using atheros chipset worked fine under FC4 updated
using the madwifi kernel module from livna.  System-config-network
recognized the card as ath0.  The card also could be activated in a
terminal using the command ifconfig ath0 up.

Last weekend did a fresh install of FC5, updated, and installed the
madwifi kernel modules.  The wireless card no longer works.  Symptoms:

1.  System-config-network sees the card, identifies it as an atheros
card, but lists its device name as wifi0.  Attempts to activate the
device through system-config-network fail.  The card does not begin to
blink.

2.  In a terminal, ifconfig wifi0 up does not activate the card.  No
blinking, no connection to the nearby wireless router.  

3. In a terminal, ifconfig ath0 up gets the card up and blinking, and
iwlist ath0 scan shows it has connected to the wireless router, but the
system somehow isn't seeing the connection as a network interface,
because I can't pull up any websites through it.  (This isn't a problem
with the wireless router:  I can run a cable to it through the eth0
interface and everything works fine.)

4. Here's the message log when plugging in the wireless card:

and when unplugging the wireless card:

Sep  7 07:23:27 localhost kernel: wifi0: Use hw queue 3 for WME_AC_VO
traffic

Looks to me like I need to link ath0 and wifi0 somewhere.  Anybody have
some advice on this one?

Thanks,
