Warren, Paul, many thanks.
I somehow missed your emails, just found your
replies in on-line archives a hour ago.

I got it all working now:

HAMOR> ifconfig wlan0
wlan0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500

One more question if you please:

In a firewall (ipfilter in my case) do I also use wlan0 as
an interface, and not ath0?

many thanks for your help and support as always
