Hello all.
   I am trying to use an Airlink 101 card with the atheros superG
chipset.  For some reason, I am unable to get an address using
# ifconfig ath0 nwid <SSID> nwkey 0x1234567890 up
# dhclient ath0

just keeps discovering.

This is with current as of a couple of days ago.

ath0 at cardbus0 function 0
ath0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
ath0: 11g rates: ......<< 1 - 54 Mbps >
ath0: tuboG rates:  ... <6- 54 Mbps>
ath0: mac 7.9 phy 4.5 radio 5.6

Using tcpdump with E10MB as the link type shows a bunch of
packets from other stations in the SSID. I can see my dhcp requests
going through.. but get no responses. I have seen this with atleast
two APs. ( a Cisco and a Netgear one)

Any suggestions/debugging ideas ? I know that the server is fine since
ral(4) and an(4) work just fine.
