It reminds me - It seems that the 80211 part of the driver does not support
"authmode shared" mode? Are there any plans for in support of that? Or are
that a good reason for the lack of it - e.g. legal etc?

I think that the prism54 is not support. But Atheros Chips have a/b/g (They
were the first a chipsets)

Ah, the beauty of OSS. Hundreds of volunteers worldwide volunteering their
time inventing and implementing new exciting ways of old fashioned  wheels.
