you cannot use macjack as a driver (yet). the interface is only there, 
because i wanted to add support for a normal driver use later on.

unfortunatly i dont have a prism 2.5 card to test, but i ll try a 
little more with my wl-100. does this happen in the same frequence, 
when you increase the channel hopping interval? or if you disable it?

the wireless driver has the one or other problem, that i saw, while 
browsing through the code. if i have time i am gonna fix that. so that 
it can be unloaded while running. i have no idea about the ioxperts 
driver. it seems to be closed source.

have fun
