On my amd64 laptop, which has some ath variant, I get freezes too. I
don't even need to use the interface.

It happens after some random time. I can avoid it by either disabling
ath0, or ACPI (strange enough). Since I prefer cabled network anyway, the
choice is abvious which one to disable (but if I take it somewhere, it
would be nice if it worked, of course).

There is no problem witn Linux on the same machine (dual boot).
