Unhappy ifconfig problem

Hi! I need some help regarding my wifi card in my Openbsd 4.3
it seems my wifi pccard can't scan my AP device

root> ifconfig ath0 up
root> ifconfig -M ath0
lladdr 42:5f:42:5f:42:5f
groups : wlan
media : IEEE802.11 autoselect (OFDM6)
status : no network
ieee80211 : nwid ""
inet6 fe80::405f:42ff:fe5f:425f:ath0 preixlen 64 scopeid 0x3

and when I issue a command

root> ifconfig ath0 up mode 11b chan 11 nwid myap nkey mysecretkey
root> dhclient ath0

it displays some error : ath0: device timeout
I already read the man page of ath but unfortunately
I dont have any idea what it tells. maybe some hardware issues.
does anyone here have an idea what should I do to conect my openbsd to my AP... thank's

Just a newbie eager to learn more...
