Wireless Network disappeared after Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) upgrade

Upgraded to 9.10 this morning but funny thing was - wireless networking wasn't working anymore - ath_pci module is gone from the release.

Fixed by loading the ath5k module, as suggested by the ThinkPad wiki. You can append it to /etc/modules for it to be automatically loaded.
