Atheros AR9285 Trouble

I've been having trouble getting a new Asus Eee PC 1005HA with the Atheros AR9285 chipset to associate on any of our HT-enabled networks. It's able to associate without any trouble on the AP-65s, etc., but no luck on AP-125s with HT enabled on 2.4GHz.

Currently we're using driver version on XP SP3.

Has anyone else had similar trouble, any suggestions, driver versions that worked, etc.,?

We upgraded to to address a separate issue and the Asus 1005HA client is now working with HT MCS 0-15 fully enabled on 2.4GHz. Thanks for the tip.

(While we were debugging on the older code we also found that instead of disabling HT entirely we could enable just MCS 0-7 - the single stream rates - and the client would be able to associate as well.)
