I'm using madwifi with 4.9GHz cards (Ubiquiti SR4) and when I have the situation as follows: - bitrate is set to auto - the station is connected to AP1 on 5MHz channel - the stations roams to the AP2 which works on 20MHz channel - the bitrate get stuck on 12M after roaming - iwlist ath0 rate returns wrong list of available bitrates - the bug is not connected with the rate module

I did a mistake writing the description - I wasn't roaming the station but changing the channel on the AP which is causing the station to reassociate on another channel.
