Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

I have problem with connecting to to madwifi configured as AP:

AP="ath0"
APDEV="wifi0"

iwpriv $AP mode 1
iwconfig $AP essid "TEST"
athctrl -i $APDEV -d 1000
iwconfig $AP channel 112
iwconfig $AP rate 36M
echo "0" > /proc/sys/dev/$APDEV/diversity
echo "1" > /proc/sys/dev/$APDEV/txantenna
echo "1" > /proc/sys/dev/$APDEV/rxantenna

ip a add 192.168.168.50/24 dev $AP
ip link set $AP up

with HW aps ( compex WEP54AG or TEW-510APB ) set as client. I tested many versions of madwifi and kernels, fo. madwifi-0.9.1, madwifi-0.9.2.1, madwifi-0.9.2, madwifi-0.9.3.1, madwifi-0.9.3.2, madwifi-0.9.3.3, madwifi-0.9.3, madwifi-0.9.4 and kernel linux-2.6.23, linux-2.6.15.1, linux-2.6.22.6, linux-2.6.23.14. I found same bug as TT in #756, but this patch cant solve my problem. Athdebug 0xffffffff is included.

dmesg when load driver is:
