yes, but cable is disabled at the moment 

I think there is a problem with DS/1Mbps
this driver seems to allow by default the transfer rate: 1 Mbps 

my wlan access point accept only 54Mbps !

I think I must change to 54Mbps using ifconfig

Do you know, howto change this ?

# ifconfig ath0 media DS/54Mbps
ifconfig: unknown media subtype: DS/54Mbps
