Sorry if I have the wrong list.  I figured that I should talk directly to
the developers as they can tell me what hardware they develop on and I can
take a cue from that.  Do you know of a better place for this question?

My OS choice is open right now.  I figured Linux, but the box is going to
be dedicated to wireless and that is it.  Right now I have chosen x86/x64
platform.  I was staying away from ARM.

What do you recommend?

I just want a full feature setup.  2.4 Ghz, 5Ghz...G,N,AC.  I am focusing
on AC right now though.  I realize that I may have to use more then one
card to achieve all this.

I do not have to use PCIe if that is not the recommended route.
