The wifi driver was recently updated to a new version and a patch to enable the WNA1000M was missing so the WNA1000M stopped working. This has been fixed with the very latest version that can be updated to using command sudo rpi-update. If you don't have rpi-update you can install it with the command sudo apt-get install rpi-update.

Also the script has been updated as well. Rerun the script and it should load the latest version that recognises the new kernel versions.
