OK thanks.

BTW, sorry, didn't mean to sound impatient - I wondered if someone else might answer. I've also replied to another thread hoping the OP of that thread might reply back. I am also getting someone else who has better wireless skills than myself to take a look at our install, and if we get to the bottom of this in the meantime i'll reply back on here with what the fix is.

We are using "kmod-ath9k" which as per your earlier note is the probably a openwrt specific version. We are going to install with latest ath9k drivers from the ath9k website, if possible.
