Parameters of atheros wireless nic at startup
I'm experiencing the following weird behavior.
I have tried to pass the following parameters to my atheros CM9 minipci card installed in my pfsense box (x86 PC).
I have tried to put them in config.xml with <shellcmd>and <afterfilterchangeshellcmd>or execute them by a startup script put in /usr/local/etc/rc.d
I have the same problem in both configurations.
Diversity and slottime are returning to the original values (diversity=1, slottime=9) after reboot. Everything else is taking the requested value.
I'm I missing something or it is a FreeBSD driver related issue?
I'm running pfsense 1.0.1.</afterfilterchangeshellcmd></shellcmd>
It seems that the problem occurs only when the CM9 card is working in client mode.
I have managed to overcome this by making a shell script, executed by crontab every 5 minutes, that sets the correct values.
I have not noticed any problem with that for about 7 days of constant operation.
