This could be the reason:

madwifi-dev - includes for the Multiband Atheros Driver for WiFi

You may also need to install one or several of these packages:

# apt-cache search ieee80211
ieee80211-source - Source for the 802.11 (wireless) network stack for Linux
ieee80211softmac-headers-2.6.15-1 - IEEE 802.11 SoftMAC headers for Linux 2.6.15-1
ieee80211softmac-modules-2.6.15-1-486 - IEEE 802.11 SoftMAC kernel module for Linux 2.6.15-1-486
ieee80211softmac-modules-2.6.15-1-686 - IEEE 802.11 SoftMAC kernel module for Linux 2.6.15-1-686
ieee80211softmac-modules-2.6.15-1-686-smp - IEEE 802.11 SoftMAC kernel module for Linux 2.6.15-1-686-smp
ieee80211softmac-modules-2.6.15-1-k7 - IEEE 802.11 SoftMAC kernel module for Linux 2.6.15-1-k7
