I have an Alix board but I keep getting
ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 8 (2447 MHz, flags 0x480), hal status 3
Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode

This happens every time I try to active the wireless. The wireless chip is a AR9220 I have tried both 18/01/11 and 31/12/10 buids but both do the same.
Can you load the newly created developer on the board and try to get a panic. Installation instructions are at the end of http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,31721.45.html.
Not sure if it works on nano, but I do know it works on full.
I am also getting
ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel
ath0: ath_reset: unable to reset hardware; hal status 3
So this maybe a hardware or driver issue.
That is a firmware issue.
Possibly a new firmware might be needed but i cannot have the card to test.
So are there drivers for the Atheros AR9220? Sorry but I wasn't able to confirm this from searches as the posts were over 1 year old.
ath0: unable to reset hardware; hal status 3
ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 13 (2472 MHz, flags 0xa0), hal status 3
ath0: ath_chan_set: unable to reset channel 2 (2417 MHz, flags 0xa0), hal status 3
and so on…
Seems somebody tries to fix it (10. March 2011):
