Do you think it's necessary to switch my AtherosL1cEthernet to this new driver?
My spec is AR8152 v1.1
The AR8152 is a 100Mb/s (non-gigabit) adapter, so it might not be worth switching if the other driver works fine. Speed is only really an issue if you transfer a lot of files around over your ethernet LAN or have a *really* fast Internet connection.

here is my problem.
When I'm using just as I always did. Suddenly my hack hanged. I have to press the power button to restart my hack
That's very unfortunate. The MAC reset errors seem to be the issue. These are sent out by some of the low-level internal hardware code when something goes wrong. Was there any other [ALXEthernet] messages other than the MAC reset errors that you can see in /var/log/system.log from the Console app? If not it might be a problem that can only be fixed with a Linux patch from Atheros themselves. I'll try and investigate further if I can though.
Sometimes I've noticed the ethernet card can go a little odd when a new kext is loaded for the first time though. You could try unplugging all power from your PC for a few seconds and then booting and see if it helps. There's a (very slim) chance that it might help.
