Hi guys,

I tried to switch madwifi driver to monitor mode. The system freezes on switch.

I am using linux 2.6.29.1. madwifi is the current trunk version from the snapshot. It behaved normal in ap and sta modes. I checked the system log and didn't see suspicious events.

When I use the other madwifi versions in the snapshot, for example madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current.tar.gz, monitor mode works. However ap mode doesn't work and with dmesg it says:

wifi0: ath_mgtstart: Dropping; no available transmit buffers.

Please help on these issues. Either one works is ok. I need both ap mode and monitor mode.

Below is the wireless card:

02:0a.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5008 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)

Thanks,

Leo
