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
read fault was in HwGetReceivedMPDU when calling HalGetRxStatus.

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
hidden…)

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,
