I had same problem a week ago. But I blacklisted ath5k because it
doesn't support AP mode. I didn't tried whether wireless will work
properly if both of them loaded because that machine was acting as a
only network access in my office. Tomorrow I'll have brand new linksys
wireless router that will replace current setup, then I'll be able to
test it. Is anyone have such experience?
