Ah, it's good to know that dual support for AP and rfmon exist. However, I'll be more than pleased with myself if I'm able to get this up and running without too much trouble.

Thanks for the heads up on the broadcom support. To be fair I did find your post about Broadcom-support in the development version in SourceSafe. However, this still needs to be compiled and with my current Linux experience this might be a stretch.

One other thing I was rather curious about. How do I enable AP support again when I need to? Just kill the drone or do I need to do anything else on the console in order for the router to return to AP mode?

As ever,
