Not sure what your point is but I recently verified that static turbo
mode worked and got 52Mb/s for upstream tcp netperf in close proximity
and ~65Mb/s for udp unidirectional traffic. This is current with the
latest hal but the hal should not matter. Nightly runs of the linux code
with SuperG support hit 90+ Mb/s (though I consider that an unrealistic
figure for normal operation).
I have repeatedly stated that dynamic turbo support (required for 11g
operation) is not going to be committed any time soon. If you want it
now run the ndis driver but understand that turbo in 11g is a hit+miss
proposition because of spectrum restrictions; better to use static (i.e.
non-dynamic) turbo in 11a where you are less likely to be affected by
As for price the cost of the equipment is so low that you're saving
little by buying an Atheros-based product that does not have turbo mode.
