looks the same as my atheros too, with the only difference being under
interfaces, I have

steve at ubuntu-laptop:/etc/network$ cat interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
#iface eth1 inet dhcp

auto eth2
#iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
#iface wlan0 inet dhcp

you dont say what version your using though, are you using alpha or beta
hardy like me?  I couldnt get atheros wireless to work with default
kernel in hardy (2.6.24-12)   But .17 and .20 worked fine then, although
magically over the last week .24 now works as intended.
