Hi!

I have the same problems with my Netgear-MA311.
It hangs whith the same log entries when I run it on max load for a few 
minutes (FTP or filecopy).

Some say that you should be able to correct the problem with new prism 
firmware, but I wasn't able to use the latest ones on my card..
But you could give it a try, info @ http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-
prism/
