Question Ath0: no carrier

I added

to /boot/loader.conf

I then tried to compile these drivers into the kernel:

device ath               # Atheros IEEE 802.11 wireless network driver
device ath_hal           # Atheros Hardware Access Layer
device ath_rate_sample   # John Bicket's SampleRate control algorithm.
device wlan              # 802.11 support (Required)
device wlan_wep          # WEP crypto support for 802.11 devices
device wlan_ccmp         # AES-CCMP crypto support for 802.11 devices
device wlan_tkip         # TKIP and Michael crypto support for 802.11 devices
Rebuilding the kernel failed with a compile error regarding ath_hal. See: ath_hal error (I am not yet allowed to post the URL pointing to that thread).

So I then tried to load the necessary modules by hand but I got:

can't load ... : File exists.
I added:

ifconfig_ath0="WPA DHCP

to /etc/rc.conf

I tried:

/etc/rc.d/netif start
Starting wpa_supplicant.
ELOOP: remaining socket: sock=5 eloop_data=0x28407140 user_data=0x2840e040 handler=0x8069f40

wpa_supplicant[97512]: Failed to initialise driver interface
/etc/rc.d/wpa_supplicant: WARNING: failed to start wpa_supplicant
I added this to /etc/wpa_supplicant:

ssid="my network name"
psk=" my password"
I added this to /etc/rc.conf:

ifconfig_ath0="WPA DHCP"
I'm stuck. Any ideas?
