Thanks Jouni

I haven't decided yet which card to buy. So I guess that if I want to play it safe I can choose from any of the cards listed here:

What nic brands/models are you actually developing hostapd/wpa_supplicant on?

You've actually been able to perform "fast roaming" with ath9k and any one of the methods mentioned above, even when using WPA2-AES EAP-TLS with RADIUS? (def. "fast roaming": fast enough for realtime apps such as VoIP).

Do you release wpa_supplicant development binary snapshots for Windows or do I have to build from source?
I'm asking because this url seems empty (but it refers to "release" anyway):
