Do you mean ath(4) does not associate?

This configure means your AP is not using any protection (e.g. WEP, WPA ...)
What's the output of:
ifconfig ath0 up scan
Please refer to following link for an up-to-date wireless
Note, the WPA rc script part in the above document does not apply to
dfly. I will be more than happy if someone can make it work :)

IFF_RUNNING was not turned on. Have you seen any of following
messages in your /var/log/messages or on you console when you
configured your ath(4):

"unable to start recv logic"
