I just want to say thanks!

I will buy this device very soon.
Is this source for same firmware that was closed?
Will AP mode work in future?

If you were to release the documentation, then it would be really
possible to fix AP mode for this firmware.


If you could just release ath5k documentation.... I would fix its
numerous problems I have with my aspire one (AR2425)...

Best regards,
Maxim Levitsky
