thank you for your help but it doesn't work

Hi,

I use madwifi drivers on my macbook which has a Atheros chipset. Try having a look here madwifi.org .

If the stable package doesn't work try downloading the latest development branch. I needed to do that to get the drivers I needed.

Can you help with this problem?
