OK I enabled this last night and this morning I find that the DHCP server has 
stopped serving anything on the WIFI interface. Thats a new one. It might be a 
random bugs in the ISC DHCP server but I haven’t noticed it before and I have 
seen that rtadvd sometimes doesn’t cope with broken interfaces and requires a 
restart after they are fixed so maybe dhcpd is similar. That would mean the 
sysctl loop had brought things back by itself. DHCP didn’t log anything and 
seemed to be working over wired ethernet.

I restarted DHCP and everything seems normal. Pings are a bit variable but no 
IP layer loss (e.g. best 1.6ms, avg 6.9ms, worst 15.3 ms for a ping from a 
client to the base station).

Nothing logged yet from ath0 other than "ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss 
count 0)” (note 0 this time) logged approx every 4 minutes. Every 5th (approx) 
has a bmiss of 4). "ath0: device timeout” appears about once every 2 hours.

I will keep checking and let you know.
