I missed the beginning of this thread, but I've had problems with my =
default route -- on ath0 and wi0, and going back a couple of years -- =
going away for no apparent reason. It doesn't matter whether WEP is on =
or off. I've posted about this a few times, in fact. The problem is =
related to carrier dropping -- at least, I see the carrier drops since =
