Thanks for your replies guys. Will this support 11g as I read something
about the wireless stack in 6.0 is different in some way compared to 5.4 ?
I tried to compile 6.0-BETA 2 with both device ath and device ath_hal
but the kernel compile died with undefined symbol error's, i've google
it but not found anything, any idea's guy's ?
Cheers again
