  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.
