I've been trying out trunk r15106 on a TP-LINK TL-WR941ND (ar71xx platform with mac80211/ath9k wifi driver) for a week or so.
It works fine for the first couple of minutes/hours but then slowly begins to deteriorate: it becomes increasingly difficult to associate with it (client times out) and once associated packetloss increases to the 50-75% range and roundtrip times increase to 10-20 seconds. After 24 hours it is almost certainly completely dead.
How to reproduce:
- Setup a client that connects to the router and pings it overnight.
Expected result: Client should still be pinging the router next day.
Actual result: Client has lost association and cannot connect again, or packetloss is 50-75%.
