I also have a net4501 and a mini-PCI wireless card from netgate.com.
scp (and rsync) caused the net4501 to become completely unresponsive
when transferring files from the wireless segment to the wired segment.
>From what I have determined, the mini-PCI card was failing miserably
when using 104-bit WEP (firmware-based) and became unresponsive. Using
40-bit WEP (or none) everything would work just fine.
