Description

I have purchased a 802.11n mini-PCI card with device ID 168C:0027. I have checked the current version and trunk version of madwifi and this card is not supported. Just would like know is there any future plan for this. What is the current status of 802.11n support in Madwifi.

What chipset is used on this card? Note that PCI IDs are not safe for identifying chipset revisions.

What is the current status of 802.11n support in Madwifi.

MadWifi has been declared legacy. 11n support requires a good amount of changes not only in net80211, hence it's very unlikely that 11n support will ever be available in MadWifi. However, depending on our HAL supplier maybe support for legacy operation (11a/b/g modes) might be possible.

The chipset is MAC/BB AR9160 amd RF AR9106. Supported?

To the best of my knowledge: no. But then, why don't you just give it a try with the latest trunk, maybe I am wrong? :)

I have try to modprobe the ath_pci using the trunk version. Not able to succeed. Further check that this device ID is not available.
