ath9k with hostapd and iPad / iPhone



Hi

has somebody "magic settings" to get Apple mobile-crap
working with hostapd instead permanently interrupt the
connection?

other mobile devices are working fine all the time up to 80 Mbit
netto and only recent iPhone / iPad is running in trouble

no these are not my devices but my AP :-(

the "iphone"-block from my "hostapd.conf" below was a try after
google around the world, other devies are still happy but the
apple crap is still not impressed by the change
