My Atheros WIFI adapter



Supposedly, the Atheros 5212 chipset supports both 11.a/b/g, but for
some reason 'ifconfig -m' does not return any modes for the 11b network
(which I am currently trying to stay connected to).

bumbaldi# dmesg |grep ath0

ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xed800000-0xed80ffff irq 16 at device 13.0 on

Nor does the dmesg as you can see.

I am using FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE and I have just rebuild world and
installed a new kernel, still nothing works.

Does anyone know why this happens?

This is causing me allot of problems, I cannot connect to the router
properly because the card randomly looses carrier and I - of course -
loose connectivity.  Very irritating, because I often disconnect from
IRC, slow download etc.
