Progress on ath5k
Quick update on ath5k: Finally made some progress on the transmit power issue with newer RF designs of Atheros 11a/b/g hardware.
With my patches, I’m finally able to transmit at 54 Mbit with decent, but not yet perfect output power on an AR5413 card. Together with Nick (mickflemm) we’ll finish the rest of the TPC (Transmit Power Control) stuff very soon.
After that I can finally start working on adding WiSoC support to this driver, which means that we’ll be able to replace MadWiFi for some setups on small devices like La Fonera as well.
If you want to help us testing this stuff, please apply ath5k related patches from https://svn.openwrt.org/openwrt/trunk/package/mac80211/patches to a recent wireless-testing version.
