Hi all,

  I am working on a project that uses multiple 802.11 cards on a single machine. I use a routerboard IA/MP8 8 slot miniPCI to PCI adapter for having 8 R52  devices on a single machine.

  My question is this: Is there a limit on the number of VAPs that can be addressed by madwifi. I get device names  ath0, ath1, ath2, ath3, ath4 for the first 5 devices. Beyond that I get ath0_rename etc. Further these devices are not listed in ifconfig by default. I have to manually do a [% ifconfig ath0_rename up] etc. Is there a way to prevent this behavior using madwifi or is the numbering created by the binary HAL?

thanks
