Hi

Just got my wireless card recognised (Atheros 5424/2424 ), 

dmesg:

> ath0: <Atheros 5424/2424> mem 0xf6000000-0xf600ffff irq 19 at device 0.0 on pci3
> ath0: [ITHREAD]
> ath0: WARNING: using obsoleted if_watchdog interface
> ath0: Ethernet address: 00:1f:e1:6a:98:4f
> ath0: mac 14.2 phy 7.0 radio 10.2
> 

though when I do a ifconfig ath0 up scan it hangs, 

here are my configs/versions:


> uname -a
> FreeBSD valhalla.bollocks.co.zw 7.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE #1: Wed Mar 25 21:48:04 CAT 2009     sysbg@valhalla.bollocks.co.zw:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/VALHALLA-KERNEL  i386

from my kernel config:

kldstat:
