Atheros ath0: device timeout errors
diyguy last edited by
I have installed pfsense 2.2.6-RELEASE on a PC Engines APU2C4 board, with a Compex WLE200NX WiFi mini-PCIe adapter.
The WLE200NX is detected as ath0 but the card doesn't seem to transmit any SSID I configure, and I'm getting regular 'ath0: device timeout' errors - maybe one every minute or so, but it does successfully pick up my home Wifi SSID using the pfSense UI Status/WiFi/Rescan.
Some information that might be useful below.
From what I've read it looks like the Atheros AR9280 chipset is supported but I don't really know where to go from here. Any help or advice very much appreciated.

Also, athstats gives me this output. Not sure if the ioctl errors at the beginning are normal or not
