Well my dmesg lines don't look like either set of yours BUT disabling
802.11a didn't fix it but disabling 802.11g  as well leaves me with a
working 11b. After I paid for a brandname a/b/g, dammit!

One day there will be hardware makers across the range of product lines
that will be trying as hard as OpenBSD developers to attain perfection
and open docs, sigh....

yep, a couple of ppl emailed me offlist regarding this, unfortunately switching to .11b was not an option as we specificaly needed .11a

There are known a/g problems on ath(4), IIRC reyk@ is actively looking
at them.


Thanx for the update Damien
