Somebody in the thread at some point said:

| When we try to ssh from the network to the ar6k target, we have mostly
| the same log, with the same error and same behavior after the last debug
| output : Nothing more happen. We can't ping, we can't do anything.
| Another thing I don't understand is : What is the difference in the Ar6K
| point of view between a ping and a wget ?? Ar6k is just transmitting and
| receiving packets, doesn't it ?

Sorry, don't know much about AR6K, but I have ideas:

Ping is short, wget will have bulk packets flying about... it can expose
problems maybe still in your power arrangements.  The module wants
|400mW during rx and tx IIRC.

You can see if this is the problem by sending abnormal pings, you can
both floodping and change the size of ping payload, see man ping.
