Thanks, Wes.

Sorry, but nothing more to report.

I am using if_bridge as my rc.conf shows I clone the interface and create the 
bridge.  This autoloads the if_bridge.ko as shown:

1   12 0xc0400000 534520   kernel
 2    1 0xc0935000 121e4    geom_mirror.ko
 3    1 0xc0948000 10958    if_ath.ko
 4    3 0xc0959000 26b60    ath_hal.ko
 5    2 0xc0980000 40ac     ath_rate.ko
 6    1 0xc0985000 58554    acpi.ko
 7    1 0xc3567000 8000     if_bridge.ko
 8    1 0xc3661000 4000     logo_saver.ko

Pretty much I copied this from the ath man page:

           ifconfig ath0 inet up ssid my_ap media DS/11Mbps mediaopt hostap
           sysctl net.inet.ip.check_interface=0
           ifconfig bridge0 create
           ifconfig bridge0 addm ath0 addm fxp0
 
Seems that once I rebooted, both interfaces came up in promiscuous mode, so 
that's a no go now.  I still believe it to be a frag/UDP/RPC issue.

Wes do you or anyone else have any further insight?

Thank you,

Paul Pathiakis
