i don't know if it's related, but i had some issues with my Atheros (possibly 
the same card) and it's "n" functionalities which seem to be non-existing or 
at least non-working (apparently for a while)

looking at it, it seems this might be related to upstream :-( bad linux 

i tested with mga1, i suppose newer kernel might bring better support, but 
haven't tested with mga2 yet.
