/bsd: athn0: device timeout

bluesun08
I own a Compex WLE200NX Atheros AR9280 Minipci-express Wlan Card and use it in hostap-mode.

Every 10 minutes i get the following error:
/bsd: athn0: device timeout

The Wlan connections and all radio/video streaming stopps.
Then i do manually a "sh /etc/netstart athn0" and the radio/video streaming continue.

Thats very annoying. Isn't there
a) a reasonable minipci-express wlan card for hostap-mode which is stable or
b) a patch for the device timeout-error?

I thought OpenBSD is ideally for routers?

My setup:

/etc/hostname.re0
up

/etc/hostname.vlan100
vlan 100 vlandev re0
up

/etc/hostname.vlan178
inet 192.168.178.184 255.255.255.0 NONE vlan 178 vlandev re0
up

/etc/hostname.athn0
mediaopt hostap mode 11g nwid openbsd wpakey <password> up

/etc/hostname.vether0
inet 192.168.100.184 255.255.255.0
up

/etc/hostname.bridge0
add athn0
add vlan100
add vether0
up

/etc/pf.conf
if_lo="lo0"
ext_if="vlan178"
int_if="vether0"
wlan_if="athn0"

Re: /bsd: athn0: device timeout

bluesun08
In the end i can answer my question myself:

I tested the card in different machines. Now i found one in which the card works without any problems.

So my result: A working/non working WLAN-Card is a matter of Mainboard/Hardware/Bios. If these things are reasonable and well proven then there are no problems.

In doubt try an older but reliable Mainboard/Hardware/Bios. Modern Mainboard/Hardware/Bios CAN make difficulties.

Thank you all!

Agree and agree. I've had a vaguely similar experience in 2014 with a
combination of Debian 7, a "latest and greatest" mobo, a noname PCIe
USB3.0 card, a 15m USB extension cable, and five USB webcams. The
webcams would randomly start outputting WAY too dark video streams, once
in 1-3h.

After several weeks of fighting and head-scratching, we've replaced the
"latest and greatest" PC with a mini Dell server. The setup was 100%
reliable following the switch.

One day before the project was delivered, mobo manufacturer releases
errata: PCIe bus would randomly drop voltage. BIOS upgrade would have
fixed it... I was already happy with the Dell though.
