Interesting.

I am beginning to think the failure to associate is kinda widespread, but I
can say quite confidently, that even after 2 or 3 hours, 100% of my star-os
clients come back.   I have never needed one rebooted except for lightning
strikes nearby...  which appeared to shut them off.. (?)

Now, the Asus AP in my house...  The non-atheros devices I use will
occaisionally behave that way. I have a pda that after a certain amount of
being "on" and out of range will not pick up anything until the wireless is
turned off and back on again.

It's gotta be some kind of software issue... power saving, maybe?
