I had to issue the whole ifconfig-line always twice!
I use is a Netgear WAG511 with AR5213 chipset, but only AR5210, AR5211,
and AR5212 chipets are officially supported and the ath-man-page sais,
that the WAG511 uses a AR5212 chipset...kind of strange.
A second WLAN-Card I use, uses the ndisulator, with the same behavior.
I still have no idea on how to setup the card(s) on boot, but
configuring by hand works.
My system is a 5.4-Rel on a IBM R31.
