I have had it running on the archer's ath10k, but we had so many other
bugs to deal with at the time that I haven't gone back to try it - most
o the time you are running out of cpu on the archer in the other direction.

I have been running that firmware in adhoc mode for a few weeks now and
am about to try a field deployment of the ubnt uap-lites.

It is MUCH faster that 802.11n is at short distances, I'm about to try
1000 feet or so, through a whole lotta trees.

"Caldera" brings back nightmares.
