Atheros 5212 card causing FreeBSD to freeze

Does anyone here have any idea why my laptop would freeze up when I put a
wireless networking card into it and then return to normal when I remove it?

It's seems to be detecting the card correctly because I get the message when
I insert it:

ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0x88000000-0x8800ffff irq 9 at device 0.0 on

Also, when I remove the card, I get:

ath0: Ethernet address: 00:17:5b:44:28:dc
ath0: mac 7.8 phy 4.5 radio 5.6
