Sepherosa Ziehau has added ‘in-progress’ support for a number of Broadcom networking chipsets.Â Check the commit message for features, credits, and so on.Â Thanks, Sephe!
Speaking of wireless, can anyone suggest makes and models of MIMO Ralink devices, or anything MIMO with any known-friendly, known-working chipset?
I found a USB dongle with the pre-MIMO chipset a while back, and the range is about fifteen feet shy of what I need it to be.
I don’t know which one works well. However, in dfly, I can’t drive my edimax 7608pg (2661) above 36Mbits/s, while it does work well when TX rate is below 48Mbits/s. Since there is no support for their MIMO features (neither in 802.11 layer, it requires special vendor IE parsing, nor in driver), I suggest you to stay away from 2661 parts, instead, find some plain good 2561S parts, which is quite common in non-MIMO edimax cards and certain linksys PCI cards; 2561S parts’ performance is reasonably good and dfly has firmware based crypto support for it.
