I am trying to setup a WDS bridge using madwifi on Intel IXP425 board with Atheros miniPCI card. The board is running snapgear linux 2.6.17 and the
latest madwifi svn revision r3746 built into the kernel image. The dmesg shows
PPP generic driver version 2.4.2
PPP Deflate Compression module registered
PPP BSD Compression module registered
PPP MPPE Compression module registered
NET: Registered protocol family 24
PCI: enabling device 0000:00:0f.0 (0340 -> 0342)
MadWifi: ath_attach: Switching rfkill capability off.
wifi0: Atheros AR5414 chip found (MAC 10.5, PHY SChip 6.1, Radio 6.3)
unable to load wlan_scan_sta
ath_pci: wifi0: Atheros 5212: mem=0x48000000, irq=28
AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, AR5416, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413, RF2133, REGOPS_FUNC)
wlan: mac acl policy registered
Uniform Multi-Platform E-IDE driver Revision: 7.00alpha2
After WDS setup successfully, the client is associated to the AP but I keep getting the following error messages very rarely and randomly
wifi0: ath_fatal_tasklet: Hardware error; resetting.
Can anybody precise me what cause this type of fatal harware restting error ?
Also the dmesg shows a module load error "unable to load wlan_scan_sta" when it is forcefully built into kernel image.
