    v27 v28  
    9696* I have recently emerged from a lengthy fight with this issue myself; I was experiencing the SBP very frequently using an AR2413 in a HostAP setup under Linux 2.6.26 with MadWifi 0.9.4 (Debian Lenny stable, March 2009).  It seems that ath5k has yet to support AP (I'll keep my eye on that one) and HostAP obviously won't work with ndiswrapper nicely.  I wound up just rolling back to my 2.6.18 kernel with MadWifi 0.9.3, which doesn't seem to have the stuck beacon problem at all. 
     98== Solution for Debian Lenny (linux-image-2.6.26-1) == 
     100After uptdating to Debian Lenny with kernel-2.6.26 SBP started to occur with madwifi trunk (r3952). No problems before on Debian Etch using kernel-2.6.18. After switching back to madwifi-0.9.4 SBPs disappeared. Madwifi-0.9.4 needs to be patched for kernel-2.6.26: 
     103# svn co 
     104# wget -O madwifi-0.9.4.diff "" 
     105# cd release-0.9.4 
     106# patch -p4 <../madwifi-0.9.4.diff 
     107# make
