no, it's a firmware problem.  go back to 4.x from your 5.x ... our an(4)
is dead and should be dumped and re-ported.

without the ACU utils or a linux kernel /proc style interface to configs,
it's useless anyway.

why use a Cisco if you can't use LEAP anyway.  there are lots of other
100mw radios out there with external antenna support.

more proprietary bitrot thanx to shitty vendors and closed standards
