madwifi AP stops working after a few hours on wgt634u (madwifi-dfs r3053 -> r3221 patches)

Component: base system Version:
Keywords: madwifi-dfs r3053 r3221 patch wgt634u AP Cc:


I have two wgt634u connected each together over wifi, one acts as an AP, the seconds one as the STA. Both running revision r10009 (last revision before the uclibc was upgraded) and madwifi r3053. The problem I'm observing is that after each a few hours the wireless connection between those two wgt634u stopped working (even without any encryption turned on). The simplest cure was always to run on the AP:

wifi down && wifi

I didn't have time to investigate the problem but switching to the latest madwifi-dfs-r3221 seems to solve the problem somehow. Two days of intensive testing didn't show any problems so far.

I'm interested whether anybody observed similar problems on wgt634u or on different platforms?
