Hmmm. . ..  Other than looking through the log file and dmesg for
anything odd, I only have a couple of more things for you to try.

1.  Edit /etc/modprobe.conf and add "alias wifi0 ath5k", making sure
to include a blank line at the end of the file.  Then, reboot.

2.  If you can obtain your wireless card's MAC address, add an entry
to /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net, using what is listed for eth0
as a guide.  (I don't know if modifying the udev rules in this manner
is considered the best practice.)

If neither of the above work, file a bug (my guess would be against
HAL or udev) and use the madwifi packages from rpmfusion or atrpms
until the bug is fixed.
