Not yet decided. Thanks for bringing it up, it seems I forgot to address this topic. What I think I've mentioned though: WLAN chips/modules are particularly hard to source when you want something "free" and semi-decent. Many chipsets nowadays require closed blob drivers in kernel space. Search the internet for softmac. For embedded we want a hardmac (chip with on board cpu and own firmware), if only for powersaving reasons.
