ath0 driver

If I add mode 11g to my ifconfig the card loses connectivity momentarily and
routed reports

Ierr=xx connection turned off then some random time it reports connection


If I don't add the mode 11g or even mode 11b it works at 11 mbps reliably.



It's a dlink g650 atheros 5212 chip.


This is on a 5.4 box cvsupped yesterday.


Anyone else having this issue?
