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
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?
Signature space for rent.
