* dev.ath.0.hal.force_full_reset=1 <- its already setup, this is nothing
to do with the ability to connect with my devices to the wifi, but it
helps me to have a smoother download - without this I have interruptions
(spikes) when I download - so its a good thing.

 Then I tried:
# ifconfig ath0_wlan0 -ampdutx but it hurts my download speeds. Without this I 
achieve download speeds like 15-17MB/sec but when this is active I've got only 
3MB/sec. Also, I don't know if my wifi is stable with this setting on, I need 
more days to check :)

I am using pfsense 2.2.2 at home. I have a computer dedicated to be a home 
router which contains a PCI slot wireless adapter with Atheros 9227 chipset. 
The model of the wireless adapter is TP-Link TL-WN51ND and it has two antennas. 
This comply with IEEE 802.11n, and provides wireless speed up to 300Mbps 
according to the manufacturer.
This adapter was recognized well by pfsense and I have setup with ease in "N" using channel 3 - I live in a 
crowded neighborhood and I saw that nobody is using channel 3. With this settings the wifi is working fine one or two 
days but after that I have to do something like "ifconfig ath0 down | ifconfig ath0 up" to work again a 
couple of days more. The issue is that from my laptop or phones I can see my wifi but I cant connect. I also receive a 
lot of "ath0 stuck beacon resetting" messages in pfsense. For a couple of weeks I changed back to 
"G" mode to see if its stable and its working perfectly stable with no ath0 stuck beacon messages at all!
I really would like to use in "N" because of greater download speeds but I'm 
lazy to go every time in front of the router and type ifconfig ath0 down/up every time. 
So please advise me what can I do, or check or setup.
Kind regards,


* Set dev.ath.0.hal.force_full_reset=1 ; see if that helps
* Since 11n is not working but 11g does, it may be something to do
with using 11n features. 11n is always /configured/ in the NIC. So,
try doing this:

# ifconfig wlan0 -ampdutx

.. to disable AMPDU transmit. See if that makes it behave differently.
