Hey, I'm running this small -CURRENT box as router/AP and it has a miniPCI ath(4) card that typically works fine, it only reports the occasional ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 4) not sure if that is problematic, the wifi used to work fine. If that message is harmless, maybe it should

The AR9271 is a USB-connected AR9285, for all intents and purposes. So it would use ath(4), if ath(4) had the required USB glue. Sorry. -adrian NetBSD-current seems to support AR9271, so maybe the required USB glue is not too far away? I haven't set it up yet, so can't see if it
