I'm planning to use advantages of 802.11N. I have bought ath-based pci card
for that reason, to use it in hostap mode. Here it is:
ath1: <Atheros 9280> mem 0xff9b0000-0xff9bffff irq 23 at device 2.0 on pci5
ath1: AR9280 mac 128.2 RF5133 phy 13.0
ath1 at pci0:5:2:0: class=0x028000 card=0x3a781186 chip=0x0029168c
vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
class = network
But now i'm on 8-STABLE, and 11N mode not working at all, and i just downed
that card, so i'm waiting for fbsd 9, and hope 11N will work fine in hostap
and client mode. As 11N client i'm planning to use this mini-pcie card on my
ath0: <Atheros 9285> mem 0xd7100000-0xd710ffff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci6
ath0: AR9285 mac 192.2 RF5133 phy 14.0
FYI, 9285 works very well on 8-STABLE, but only for 11g modes.
And the questions are:
* will my 9280 card work in _11N_hostap_mode after 9-RELEASE?
* will my 9285 card work in _11N_client_mode after 9-RELEASE?
Thanks a lot for your work.
