Ben Close and I have been working on this.  Legacy works ok (there is 
one issue w/ the firmware that I've worked around).  I've been mostly 
trying to get 11n working but not having much luck.  Unfortunately the 
firmware is not documented in this area and the Intel folks have been 
unresponsive (open source == linux to them).

If you look in the sam_vap branch in p4 you'll find my work.  Once 11n 
is working I intend to try the test firmware that supports ap mode.
