Well, that would be your problem right there.

What is the exact file name of the rpm's you downloaded and what is  
the output of:

$ uname -a

It looks like either you didn't install the rpm with modules, or the  
rpm you installed is for a different kernel version that what you are  
running. If you poke around in /lib/modules/ you might be able to  
find ath_pci in a different kernel revision than what you are  
running. Something like this:

cd /lib/modules
find . -name ath_pci*

If I'm right (sometimes happens) you'll need to compile or find  
modules to match your kernel version.
