I will try again analising on the AP and on a client and try to get it logged 
can you suggest a tool or method to get what you need?

Was my first thought and changed the hardware completly but the powercord ...
I should get some other ath cards this days but what should be wrong if it 
works on 5.4?
I have only one 6.0 in test since there were some bridge issues what stopped 
me upgrading any. The same hardware runs fine on all 5.4 so the problem I get 
is only on 6.0 or releng_6
