What I've noticed about iwi is that in the presence of an 802.11a
access point (note that there is also, obviously a b/g ... since the
iwi driver doesn't support a in stable), the driver sets itself to the
"down" state randomly every few minutes.  It doesn't appear to do this
if no 802.11a access point is present.
