wireless devices based on the Atheros USB chipset are supported.

For these wireless devices, it is important to note that you need to 
upload 2 Windows XP drivers, this information is in the INSTALL file:

Atheros USB adapters require loading of both the firmware driver 
(athfmwdl) and the network driver (typically neta5agu).

The mention of "soft lockup" in 'dmesg' is generally a serious problem 
in the kernel. If it is caused by DriverLoader, you could try with 
different versions of the Windows XP driver to see if there is a difference.
