well I hope that is they have patched something they have done it for
good.. :)

anyway I've got old cvs source and results are disappointing as well.

what are you exactly supposed to change? I was not complaning at you, I
was just asking if there exist a stable combination.

I have same chipset of yours but a 11b client so I set it to 0.

0000:00:0c.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5212 802.11abg NIC (rev 01)

so. so it seems that more than a madwifi issue it could be something
between madwifi and client software/hardware. one last thing, kernel
2.6.15 comes with WE 19, is that what you're using? you wrote something
about it before I didn't really understand.
Anyway i'll try with different client hardware.
