For the record: I put in another PCI ath(4) card and I'm seeing the same
thing with this card. After a while, wireless stops working. It seems to
go in to some power save mode, and then gets stuck. ifconfig wlan0 scan
fixes it, as usual.
One thing I've noticed though is that it seems to take much longer for this
card to stop working. Usually around 9-10 hours. Could be a coincidence of
This card is identified as:
