Maybe the combination of the DWL-520 and the 4501 draw more power than
you supply?

BTW, if the DWL-520 is new, it probably contains an ADMtek or Realtek
chip. I wrote an ADMtek driver for NetBSD called atw, but it does not
support hostap mode, and ADMtek tells me the chipset doesn't have AP
capability. =(
