ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xe4010000-0xe401ffff irq 11 at device 8.0 on pci0
ath0: Ethernet address: 00:0f:3d:ae:ad:b8
ath0: mac 5.9 phy 4.3 radio 4.6

while trying to transfer a 1gb file over samba from a freebsd machine
to a windows xp machine ath0 loses its "associated" state. At all
other times the connection is fine and the freebsd machine associates
with the ap just dandy. I am using wpa_supplicant, in this case the ap
is wide open. It is some kind of linksys ap. The xp machine is wired.

This is kind of annoying. playing mp3's off of the samba share works
fine. Does anyone have and suggestions on how to resolve this?
