Sorry I didnt reply sooner - I did as you asked, turned the AP SSID

No need to be sorry :-)

masking off and it still shows the same behaviour as it did before, it
never associates and then spits out the device timeout message. This

What's the result of `ifconfig ath0 up scan'?

behaviour then repeats itself until i exit the supplicant.

I havent yet had a chance to try your latest 802.11 patch, so maybe
that is another thing I should do. Also, again if you think it will
make a difference I could knock my network back to WPA instead of 2
(or even WEP I guess).

It will be helpful, if you can test in following order: 1) without any protection 2) WEP 3) WPA

The only other thing I was not totally sure about was under FreeBSD 6 I had to kldload wlan and wlan_tkip (plus possibly wlan_ccmp). I tried kldload'ing wlan under DFly, but kldstat didnt show anything so I am not sure if that was a necessary step.

If you are using GENERIC as configure file, then all the necessary modules are already in kernel, or let's say it is not necessary to kld additional modules.
