I agree but that is what it is, the communication is dead
no traffic, no beacons no IP
(I changed the antena stuff to see if the problem is in it but is not)
the wired NIC is communicating normally to/from it's own IP address and it
shows ifconfig when the card is dead as:

as I said no = no = none = nothing
I can't see the AP anymore

sure, no difference, same thing

acording to the above ifconfig output I set:
11b media DS/11Mbps mediaopt hostap ssid casa channel 11
the clients are other atheros cards on XP and FBSD, ndis on FBSD, orinoco on
XP and FBSD, senao on XP and Fbsd
Even if it does not help either, I change to boot releng_5 and the card works
fine and stable on the exactly same hardware
