My network chose to go hay wire today and not work. I am currently running a compaq computer with a ath5k wireless card and Ubuntu 10.04.
last time this happened i just did this in the terminal,
"ifconfig wlan0 down
rfkill block all
rmmod ath5k
modprobe ath5k
rfkill unblock all
rfkill unblock all
ifconfig wlan0 up"
but in the end i still get
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132
I realy need to get this system up and running on the network asap

Run a live CD to see if the wireless card still works. If it does, something went wrong with your installation. If it doesn't, the hardware probably died.

Can you post the output of dmesg?
Not the whole thing, just what's relevant to the network card.
