That's the option I have.

There were some when the driver was made available in CURRENT, I have
no severe issue at this time. wpi is quite stable except that after a
while when running in autoselect speed mode, the speed of the link
drops slowly to 0. Forcing manually the speed fixes that. I haven't
read other people complaining about that, so I live with it (I'm not
a big wireless fan).
