Thanks for the reply, i've alrady used firmwares 1.7.4, 1.7.6, 1.8.0  (in 
RAM) and still have one client that is not able to reassociate after the 
access point discards one packet from the interface with a wrong MAC...

I'm using the access points as bridges using the bridging in Linux kernel, 
the client seems associated, the card seems so, but his MAC is not in the 
bridging table....

I don't know where to look at...
