ath9k should use the same capture code as ath5k so while I don't generally recommend using the "wrong" source that shouldn't be the problem here.

Get the latest (2.6.28 + compat-wireless) drivers and maybe they'll work better. The current kernel drivers have a lot of thrash and the latest ones fix a lot of things.
