Oh, awesome Adrian thanks. I saw you writing a lot on the forums about WIFI
Initially I wanted to get the intel but I think the intel only supported
station mode. I asked this on the forum but I would like to ask here just
to have it.
How did you find a particular hardware component being supported? For
example; let's look at the wifi cards. I was looking if this device is
Atheros AR9462; googling lead me to the auth_hal man page
when I look in there I don't see any reference to the AR9462 so how can I
be sure the device will be supported?
For example ath_hal seems to go up to about 9380 and newer devices aren't
So in a situation like this, let's say I'd like to exhaust more channels
before sending off an email to some FreeBSD mailing list.
How could I further do tests w/o say buying the device online, having it
shipped, testing and possibly returning. The main reason is shipping to my
location is often more expensive than the products that I am trying to find.
