Post fit PC2i Wireless Access Point in Linux?
I realize that this has been asked a lot over the board, but I'm confused about which chip is in which fit-pc2 model.

What is the wireless chip in fit-pc2i? Can it do "master mode"? Can it be made into a wireless access point under linux?

I gather that the fit-pc2 with wifi module cannot do this, but can the fit-pc2i?


Thank you!

Michael

Bump.

If the wireless card in the fit-pc2i can not be used as an access point, can I replace its wireless card with one that does?

Am I better off ordering a fit-pc2 instead and installing my own wireless card?

note that with fit-pc2 you have more flexibility than 2i with respect to wifi because of miniPCIe availability.

Okay, reading the forum more carefully tells me that most models of the fit PC2 come with the Realtek RT3090 card.

Does the fit PC2i also come with the RT3090?

I can't figure out if RT3070 uses its own driver or if it's supported in RT2x00. Does anybody know?

RT2x00 these days both support the 3070 and the 3090 and it works with my 3090 (fit-pc2). Support for both was introduced in one and the same patch.

Awesome - thank you!

Have you gotten rt3090 to work in master mode?

According to wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/comparison_of_open_source_wireless_drivers), rt2x00 support will be in the kernel as of 2.6.33. Very cool.
