It may be a bit before I can get back to working on this effort,
but I am reading the email and it will help me when I do have time
to work on this again.

If you have time, can you see if you can get encryption working with
ath9k to ath9k?  I could not get that working, and I am not sure if
it is my supplicant setup or if I have some other bugs somewhere...

Please post config files if you do get it working.

And, what is ath9k to ath9k transfer rates?
