Turning them off didn't fix it.
I have switched to 802.11b:
ath0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.50 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
inet6 fe80::20f:b5ff:fefa:9196%ath0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (DS/5.5Mbps)
ssid homenetwork channel 11 bssid 00:19:db:0a:39:e6
authmode OPEN privacy OFF txpowmax 37 bmiss 7 protmode CTS burst
Sometimes it goes to 11Mbps, but usually stays at 5.5. Guess what,
browsing has been much better now. Even though slowness occured a couple
of times in the last 16 hours on 802.11b, it hasnt actually halted
What does it indicate?
