Default Box Wont Boot After Editing /etc/hostname.athn0

I am having a bit of a problem installing a wireless card.
The machine has one wired ethernet and one wireless card (athn0)
The athn0 will act as an access point for wireless devices.

The first thing I do is install OpenBSD 5.2 and reboot.
I have no issues until I edit /etc/hostname.athn0

The wireless card I have is a d-link DWA-566 which uses the Atheros which should work according to http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq6.html#Wireless

After reading this http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.c...athn&sektion=4 I see that in order to get this working as an AP I have to edit /etc/hostname.athn0 to this
inet NONE media autoselect mediaopt hostap nwid my_net chan 11
then I reboot and I get these errors

What am I doing wrong?
