I read that the D-Link DWA-556 uses the AR5008 chipset. Anyone using
it? Does it work well for hostap (at least for 11g)? I'm a bit unsure
because I've read that AR5008 has hardware bugs. However, I am a fan of
ath(4) ... it has served me well in the past. However, I'm considering
building a Mini ITX system that has only one PCI-E x4 slot. My choices
seem to be DWA-556 (AR5008) and Asus PCE-N13 (RT2860), both of which are
PCI-E x1 cards.
How about Marvell-based wireless cards (mwl(4))? I haven't been able to
find any card with a Marvell chipset in it!
