First off. check with lsmod if the module is loaded & used.
Then install rfkill & type as root i Terminal-window:
If you read Yes somewhere in the output you type rfkill unblock all or
rfkill unblock wifi or rfkill unblock wlan or wlan0
Type following as root: rmmod -f and the name of the module that the
Type modprobe followed by modulename to load the module again.
Afterwards I'd disable eth0-interface by typing ifdown eth0 as root.
I've had some problems myself with the module for Atheros AR5001
Wireless Adapter in a HP Compaq Presario CQ60-415so & I solved it that way.
