The wireless on my Asus eee 901 works. Using FN-F2 to disable the wlan works. However, after using FN-F2 to enable the wlan fails. Wlan works again after reboot.

This problem did not occur with kernel26 (downgrading fixes the issue).

Additional info:
acpi-eeepc-generic 0.9.2-1
networkmanager 0.7.1-1

lspci | grep -i wireless
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

kernel: ath5k phy0: failed to wakeup the MAC Chip
kernel: ath5k phy0: can't reset hardware (-5)

kernel.log attached

Steps to reproduce:
-start eeepc 901
-connect to wireless
-disable wireless
-try to enable wireless (fails)
This task depends upon

sounds like an upstream regression. report it to the kernel devs.
