I am using 1.8.0 on a veritech 2511 card. Not sure if it is the firmware
or hardware, but I cannot bridge wlan and ethernet when wlan is in
managed mode - bridge works fine in Master mode.

I have not done any testing to confirm it is the firmware, will be
reverting back to 1.7.4 this week.
If you use bridging I would test 1.8.0 first in the lab.

Works much better in windows XP, i.e. more stable connection (I am
beaming about 2km to the AP).
