WDK Atheros AR5008 Sample (athwifi) Sample Reliability

I just took the athwifi sample for a quick spin on a D-Link DWA-556 and
encountered a read fault after it apparently ran OK for a few minutes. The

Of course, HalGetRxStatus is in the opaque athhal.sys driver, so it can’t be
debugged by a mortal. (How helpful can a sample be if the “hard part” is

Does this sample (as well as the usbmwifi) have known faults that may it
unsuitable for actual use?

Any feedback would be appreciated. I don’t want to spend any more time on
this if it is known to be faulty.

Warm regards,
