Didn't realise the WAP11's were Prism based.

This isn't related to your question, but -

I'm a huge fan of hostap, and would love to use it in an embedded 
device - there's times when sticking a computer/laptop with a 
PCI/PCMCIA card in it isn't suitable - up the top of a 60ft tower, for 
example :-)

What I'd really love to do (or maybe somebody's already done this) is 
get a hardware AP, and reflash it with my own Linux running hostap 
drivers, ospfd, etc.  Every single hardware AP I've used, minus the 
thousands-of-dollars cisco/enterasys's, seem terrible for outdoor 
connections - packet loss, dup pings, crappy speeds, etc, supposedly 
because of crappy drivers being used.

Any suggestions on hardware and such?
