Default Problems with wireless client


It is my first time installing a FreeBSD wireless client to a network. I've got a D-Link adapter with the Atheros chipset. I've setuped the whole thing following the Handbook.

My setup is fairly relatively simple. It's a common D-Link AP with WPA2.

My box can connect to the AP but looses "carrier" very often resulting in packet loss.

My laptop is in the same room, but connects everywhere without any packet loss.

Here is my ifconfig output:
%ifconfig ath0
ath0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
        ether 00:1e:58:a3:08:91
        inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (DS/11Mbps)
        status: associated
        ssid ssid_name channel 1 (2412 Mhz 11g) bssid 00:1e:58:3f:de:6b
        authmode WPA2/802.11i privacy ON deftxkey UNDEF TKIP 2:128-bit
        txpower 31.5 bmiss 7 scanvalid 60 bgscan bgscanintvl 300
        bgscanidle 250 roam:rssi11g 7 roam:rate11g 5 protmode CTS burst
        roaming MANUAL
And here is my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:
And my /etc/rc.conf:
ifconfig_ath0="WPA DHCP"
Thanks for the help,
