Well, I'd start by checking to see what is being transmitted and received.

* is it transmitting beacons?
* is it transmitting anything data-like? eg, is it transmitting
broadcast/multicast frames?
* can it receive frames?

You can use athstats to see what's going on.

wlandebug -i ath(0,1,2..) +rate is a cheap way to see if its
transmitting data frames reliably.
