Hello list, I found this recent post (added to the bottom of the Email) in a OpenBSD mailing list, and I am experiencing the same problems connecting our Iphone 3G phones to our FreeBSD based AP

The power savings for 802.11 actually put the radio to sleep for a given interval and wake it up sending a message to the AP which is supposed to hold packets for a given client until the client responds, which OpenBSD does not do, therefore packetloss ensues. I know this very well, my BlackBerry Pearl 8120 gets 90-95% packet loss with an OpenBSD based AP. Damien is aware of what needs doing, but I am to understand it is not a short or easy road to get there.
