Thank you for the helpful discussion. It's great to know we're not alone.

I noticed that there is a new gumstix line (the STORM products). The chipset is new (Sitara vs OMAP), is it possible that the wifi chip is different, too? There is, of course, no mention of the details regarding the wifi chip on the gumstix information page (other than wifi exists on board).
