Issues with ALFA, but different than other topics

Config: Mark IV with ALFA 036H

Connected through a powered USB hub with modified USB cable. Removing this hop gives the same result though.

Firmware 3.0.0

I've read and followed all known forum topics, but they

- don't seem to fix my issue

- seem to describe a problem much more deep than mine

Everything shows up nicely:

USB shows all my connected devices, including the ALFA

Wifi manager: I get both internal radio and external usb radio shown up, including their respective mac addresses.

I can do a site scan for radio1 and get the desired result (the available ap's in my area that is)

For what it's worth, memorystick(s) and 3G work fine through this hub (and without it)

However in the same Wifi manager...

For 'radio0' I get 'wlan0' shown up next to it

For 'radio1' I don't get anything but a '-' next to it.

root>wifi
PHY for wifi device radio1 not found

and nothing more. Just 1 line

etc/config/wireless

config wifi-device 'radio0'
option type 'mac80211'
option channel '11'
option hwmode '11ng'

list ht_capab 'SHORT-GI-40'
list ht_capab 'RX-STBC1'
list ht_capab 'DSSS_CCK-40'
option channel '1'
option disabled '0'

config wifi-iface
option device 'radio1'
option mode 'sta'
option ssid 'homespot'
option hidden '1'
option network 'lan'
option key 'thepassword'
option encryption 'psk2+tkip+aes'

Any ideas - or any request for more info to get more view on this problem ?
