Detecting networks & connecting works fine.
What doesn't work:
The connection is very slow and it often disconnects.
What was done to make it work:
To fix the disconnects (it doesn't fix the slow connection):
Download compat-wireless from http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
Unpack the archive, and go to the folder where you unpacked it. Right-click > Open in terminal.
Run these commands:
$ ./scripts/driver-select ath5k
$ sudo make install
