Hmm. Please send me the kernel's entire dmesg output.

Are the traces identical-identical, or are they identical modulo the
AP's repeats? Do you never see the AP's repeats?
The place where I would like for you to "tap" the air is directly
beside the AP, where you should see a packet sent to the AP as well as
the repeated packet. I want to see a trace that demonstrates garbage
going into the AP and garbage coming out again, reason being that I
want to eliminate your AP from the equation.
Sorry to be so demanding, but putting you to a little trouble could
save me a lot of trouble.
