You probably have the wrong driver.

I have AR5007EG and but lspci indicates it's an AR242.

If you have Windows installed, look at the device under

Article. VI. Clause 3 of the constitution of the United States states: 

"The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of 
the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, 
both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by 
Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test 
shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust 
under the United States."
