    I tried
    lspci | grep Ethernet
    and luckily that adapter is present

    but when i compile the driver module, instruction on the readme.txt a error appears/ Here is the error.

    [root@localhost src]# make
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-164.el5PAE/build SUBDIRS=/drivers/atheros/src modules

    Try running configure again, and see if that fixes your compile issue. Even though the variable is pretty vague, I wonder if the drivers don't already exist. Try a 'dmesg | grep Ath', and see if it shows at all. If so, try a 'dmesg | grep eth', and see if it has a device added to it. It's quite possible you just need to run an 'ifconfig up' on the interface.
