Hi,

After restart from Windows and working wireless the number of interrupts
increases and the rate increases. After next restart (the ath0 times out)
the interrupts increase but the rate is going down.
I noticed that after restart from Windows and working wifi if I restart
/etc/rc.d/netif the wifi is working again. If I shutdown wlan0 and bring it
up again then I wlan0 doesn't get address but ath0 is not timing out. I can
still get a list with the available APs around.

Regards,

Lyubo
