There is no documentation that I know of which lays out what
features are implemented, and which features are not implemented in the
HAL. I'm sure by now everybody that has read my emails knows about the
regulatory reasons for Atheros not giving away access to the source.
Compliance all around with the 802.11 protocol is usefull,
obviously. Making sure this equipment can operate as it should all the
time is a priority, also. For instance, all modes of each protocol
(a/b/g) should work as expected, all speeds should work as expected,
turbo mode should also work.
Another question I have is this. When Atheros releases a new
spec. for their chipset, such as their "fourth generation" chipsets now,
which has a feature called XR (eXtended Range), how difficult is it to
get working in the HAL? I assume that the HAL actually has to support
this, correct? Anyway, thanks!
