Hi, i break my head in the wall 2 weeks with this. And i hope to recieve some help. I have TPLink WN651G with chip Atheros 5005. Madwifi find it like AR5212, ath5k like AR2414.

Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)

I recieve so much error pkg in TX. I try with madwifi 0.9.2, -3.1, 0.9.4 rev 4119. i try to change kernel and test with kernel-2.6.21, 23, 27, 30. I still have error. Work fine without error with ath5k, but i want use with madwifi and old kernel 2.6.18. I try with hostapd-0.5.1, 0.6.9, 0.6.10 and without it. work great but i still recive TX error package.
