I know this is a long-time documented issue, but I don't see any
feasible workarounds.

Running pfsense 2.4.5 on an APU2 with I think the wle card in AP mode.
It's based on FreeBSD 11.3 and I thought it was resolved by now.

I get this reguarly in my logs:

ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 4)

I'm assuming it's the reason behind wireless freezing on a periodic basis.


Postscript... I may have fixed by adjusting hw.ath.bstuck from 4=>8...
