Thank you Adrian, your advice was perfect. I have a gym friend whose job is blacksmith (the friend has right hands, and I don't), I gave him my 3 antennas, and hi made them fitted with my wireless card.
My card is able to reset it now. Instead of hung I have: wlan0: link state changed to DOWN wlan0: link state changed to UP So, thank you very much :) On Sat, 2013-01-26 at 18:26 -0800, Adrian Chadd wrote: > Hi, > > So the AR5416 and later NICs almost all implement MIMO.
