Changing from one AP to another in Linux can be pretty dodgy. While it most
often connects, either the DHCP requests aren't actually sent, or the replies
go unnoticed. In either case, rebooting always fixed it. This time I tried
rmmod ath5k followed by
modprobe ath5k. Much better
than a reboot, and it worked.
