Default How can i use atheros AR5213 in the openbsd 4.3-release?

Hello,everyone.This is my first post.
I have a atheros AR5213 card.In the windows xp,i can search the default network and connect to the network with dhcp.But in the openbsd 4.3-release,by default mediaopt,i can't find the network in the same place.
#ifconfig ath0
It shows STATUS:no network.
I input
#ifconfig ath0 media autoselect mediaopt ibss nwid default
It shows STATUS:active.
But,i input
#ifconfig ath0
It looks like:
# ifconfig ath0
        lladdr 00:0b:6b:37:a4:20
        groups: wlan
        media: IEEE802.11 autoselect (DS1)
        status: active
        ieee80211: nwid default chan 6 bssid 00:0b:6b:37:a4:20 17%
        inet6 fe80::20b:6bff:fe37:a420%ath0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
It can't catch ip address.I use the dhclient utility.It fails too.
So i can't surf the internet.
Do you have some ideas?
