I have already forced it gave lot os crazy text number etc and all usb devices stopped being detected... but this seems to be the driver loaded by ubuntu so it must be the correct one!

Megamen can you try to compile the newer drivers? http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download
I have found various people fixed by compiling the most new drivers.
The new modules have been uploaded here:
Linux 2.6 Test Files Version 8 at SourceForge.net
You need to use the new kernel. Otherwise you will get errors releated to atomic64. You need to run: depmod -a
Then you can retry to load the module.
The code is very different. I don't think that it still has the bug. Your debug output is different.
Maybe a different firmware version is working.
Run the command "lsusb" and check if the USB stick has the numbber 20ff. If you see 20ff, you should make a mode switch according to ath9k_htc - Linux Wireless.
My usb wifi is 0cf3:7015
Any other ideas?
Maybe it is broken in the kernel version and we need the same version as your Ubuntu. It is also possible that there is a general problem, like it only works on 64-bit and not 32-bit systems. What is your Ubuntu kernel version (cat /proc/version, uname -m)?
I saw a report that it is not working in some USB ports and I assume this is timing related. This could be caused by USB 1.1 ports. Only a USB 2.0 port might work which is not available on the PS2. You can try the second port and with and without a USB hub.
Ubuntu is: 188.8.131.52-generic i386 32bits
Will test with a usb hub and come back to you
Same... tested all firmare versions with and without usb hub...
I also tested my no brand bluetooh adapter and it was detected but only with the usb hub!
Without the hub i only get device read/64 error -62 and device not accepting address
PS:I think i found some kind of bug in kernel loader
2-forgoton to insert usb device with the kernel file
3-gave error on start
4-came back to the menu
5-inserted the usb device
6-loaded the kernel fine
7-hanged on copying files and start....
It have happened to me at least 3 times!
WLAN is always a problem and needs to be tested.
I uploaded 2 files:
One of these needs to be unpacked over the existing modules and "depmod -a" needs to run. Maybe one is working.
Just some information for myself which I need to rebuild the package:
I removed CONFIG_ATH5K=m from config.mk and in the 3.0.9 package I added "#define IFF_TX_SKB_SHARING 0x10000" to the file include/linux/compat-3.1.h.
Is the firmware loaded over USB? I heard of a WLAN driver which is only working when the firmware was on a fast device or is in file cache. Maybe you need to load the firmware from a memory file system like tmpfs. You can mount the tmpfs over the existing /lib/firmware and then copy the firmware to it. The driver should not be loaded before this.
