I also wrote that the lowest bit needs to be "0" in my first PR (duh! it has been too long ago!).  As I said, everything was OK on FreeBSD 7.x and broke somewhere in 8.1-RELEASE. Please also notice that the problem affects ath(4) on the driver layer (I suppose) not generally on IEEE 802.11 layer, because I also tested with rum(4) and I could use it properly.  http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-stable/2010-July/058059.html -- Martin _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-wireless To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-wireless-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
