I tried this driver on -current and not working for me.. is anybody here
who is using this driver for 11g succesfully? 

I am using DWL-G520 cards, one in 11b mode one in 11g mode. System boots
up and then the following messages are printed on screen:

ath1: device timeout and system hangs for a while (about 30s)

Thanks. Tomas Randa
