I don't believe WPA2 is supported with adhoc (at least through
wpa_supplicant). However, WPA should be and while testing your
firmware, I found that it doesn't seem to work (They don't see each
other and thus don't associate).

I also found that, like the 999.x firmware, the rate's do not go
higher than 54mbit/s. Is this due to the firmware not advertising
proper rates or..?

As for throughput, I get 22mbps TCP, 27.6mbps UDP with no encryption.
