Description (Last modified by mrenzmann)

After finally getting WPA2 working in 0.9.30 (see bug comment 175 in ticket 1001, it would be SO very nice to have 802.11n working as well.

If we could get that before Apple releases a 11n driver, that would help me shut up my MacOS budy. He's been quite ... annoying ... :)

  • description changed.

Driver support for 802.11n (means: everything that goes beyond the "legacy support" which is available in the madwifi-hal-0.9.30.x branches) requires a bunch of changes to the driver and net80211 (the 802.11 stack). It's unlikely that we will take care of the latter, as we will move MadWifi to mac80211 in the not-so-far future. And the driver changes won't help without 11n-support in the used 802.11 stack.

Bottom line: this feature request will be fulfilled, but this won't happen anytime soon (as far as I can tell at this time). You should definitely not hold your breath on it.
