Hi Bruno

As illogical as it might sound the driver I have to use is madwifi. Should I assume that no such development is in progress in open source?

use ath5k! :)

- madwifi is not actively developed any more.
- dadwifi was an intermediary step in development, long since dead and
superseded by ath5k.
- ath5k works fine for most recent chipsets.
- it's much easier to fix the remaining problems with ath5k than to deal with
the messy code in madwifi.

sorry, but i really don't see why anyone would still want to do any serious
development with anything else than ath5k... ;)
