Atheros Wireless Drivers

Thanks to everyone who helped me with my previous post.

So now I have booted up Ubuntu and everything seems to work fine except one
thing, which I will explain in a second. I can assume that because
everything is working well that all the drivers have been automatically
sorted out by Ubuntu right?

The only thing is that I received an error message telling me that my
wireless drivers were not supported by Ubuntu. Now a couple of questions.
Does this mean that there is simply no open-source version of my drivers and
that the regular ones can work? Or does it mean that there is no way that my
wireless setup will ever work on Ubuntu?

I have as a wireless setup:

Atheros Hardware Access Layer
Support for Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards

These are the two components that Ubuntu told were not working properly.
Incidentally, my wireless connection is actually working. Is this because my
computer is somehow using Windows for this process?

Anyways, thanks for everyone's help!
