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.
