Hi Adrian,

I can't believe I forgot to include that! weird that it was working without it in 8.2!

I added back:  options         ATH_ENABLE_11N      and device ath_pci and recompiling! :)

btw, do you know if AR9160 can support multiple SSIDs in hostap mode? Example, I would like to create one 802.11a SSID network and another 802.11n or 802.11g  network...

Shant K.

Try including the ath_pci device in your kernel config file.

Sorry about that! :)
