SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown Error 132
 
I'm running Gentoo amd64 on a Toshiba Satellite C655 with an Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01). For some strange reason, if net.wlan0 has some trouble starting correctly (e.g. I'm not in range of my network), i can't bring wlan0 up directly. Attempting to do so results in a slew of SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown Error 132s. Running
Code:

rfkill block all
rfkill unblock all

seems to fix the problem, but i have no idea why. Perhaps someone could shed some light on my situation?

This SHOULD work....
Code:

rmmod ath5k
rfkill block all
rfkill unblock all
modprobe ath5k
rfkill unblock all
ifconfig wlan0 up
