Sure, that shows that your environment is quite noisy. :-)
But is transmission just plain not happening? Is it just never
associating? Or is it sometimes associating and sometimes not?
It's a bit crowded here ; )
Well as far as I have observed, it never associated.
ehm, well.. ath0 seems to be, wlan0 however not:

The driver in -HEAD logs the TX and RX interrupt counts in a ath

Can you please compile up athstats and recompile your kernel with:
