Maybe one of:

ath5k cannot connect to WPA networks with a AR242x (or AR5007) chipset


ath5k modul disconnect with Access-Point

I don't use WPA/WPA2, but I have had disconnects using ath5k that I
never had with madwifi resembling the second bug (i.e. 'No
ProbeResp ... assume out of range' errors).  I simply toggle FnF2 and
then I'm back in business again.  It doesn't happen frequently enough
on open networks to be much of a bother.
