Here is the only line in my dmesg related to anything wireless:

ath_hal: (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)

No ath0, wlan, etc.

I am using a variant of the GENERIC kernel config file:

# Wireless NIC cards
device		wlan		# 802.11 support
device		wlan_wep	# 802.11 WEP support
device		wlan_ccmp	# 802.11 CCMP support
device		wlan_tkip	# 802.11 TKIP support
device		an		# Aironet 4500/4800 802.11 wireless NICs.
device		ath		# Atheros pci/cardbus NIC's
device		ath_hal		# Atheros HAL (Hardware Access Layer)
device		ath_rate_sample	# SampleRate tx rate control for ath
device		awi		# BayStack 660 and others
device		ral		# Ralink Technology RT2500 wireless NICs.
device		wi		# WaveLAN/Intersil/Symbol 802.11 wireless NICs.
#device		wl		# Older non 802.11 Wavelan wireless NIC.

I am wondering what is happening?  This laptop is a newer Sony VIAO
