I can now add that I have been able to connect with the old madwifi
driver. But this one reconnects about every 20 seconds with a message

Feb 15 09:20:35 evilgenius kernel: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): ath0: link is
not ready

in the log file. So it boils down to a madwifi problem, as it seems. Is
NM triggering scans and then the connection breaks down? Is there some
patch that I have to apply for madwifi-ng to get it running or anything
I can do to get the old madwifi to associate?
