You really need to copy here exactly what you put in rc.conf and exactly
what you type on the command line to set it up manually. From what
you've said it's possible to assume you have two ifconfig_ath0= lines in
rc.conf, and I don't think that would work. The latter would replace,
not augment, the former.
I get "ath0: association failed (reason 12) for

That doesn't follow.
