can someone suggest which 802.11b card is the best one for WiFi hostap?
We are using Pism2.5 Z-COM-MAX XI-325 PCMCIA. They are working pretty
good but after some time they are in some strange state and only reboot
I remember that someones use NetGate products but
(1) mail archive is not searchable so it's pretty difficult to find all
(2) NetGate products have not certification in Czech Republic
(3) I have no idea what difference is between NetGate and ZCOM if there
is the same chipset (so, is it helpfull for me)
(4) I'm not sure if NetGate support TX power regulation which is working
on ZCOM cards and we need it.
Now We are running FreeBSD 4.8 with patched wi driver and we will
probably move to FreeBSD 5.2.1 where are already functions what we are
patching in 4.8 and driver is also "little bit" rewriten.
We have some theory and we will explore FreeBSD driver this week but
anyway any success stories appreciated. because we are still not sure if
it's hardware problem or driver problem.
