Description Domagoj Smolčić 2013-05-10 21:30:00 UTC
Working as AP, repetitive:

ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 4)


Changing WiFi channel, but that is not a long term solution.

same with :

ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0x55200000-0x5520ffff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci3
ath0: AR2425 mac 14.2 RF5424 phy 7.0
ath0: 2GHz radio: 0x0000; 5GHz radio: 0x00a2
ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 4)
ath0: device timeout

create_args_wlan0="wlanmod hostap mode 11g"


Temporary solution:
create a cronjob that every minute to ifconfig wlan0 down and ifconfig wlan0 up so it will not hang
Comment 3 Adrian Chadd freebsd_committer 2015-07-18 22:16:35 UTC
what's the output of ifconfig -v wlan0 ?
