Perhaps we can do a meeting after your ABI and do some tests with another AP?

- I got the wireless-dev.git tree version g5363171f.
- I could successfully use the SOFTMAC driver with my Netgear WG511 and the
Fritz!Box Fon WLAN 7170
- WPA and WPA2 encryption worked fine (very good work Thanks!)
- only the "Act" (yellow) LED on the WLAN-Adapter was flashing very very fast
the whole time, I hope it doesn't give up to fast (perhaps someone could set
the rate a little bit down?)

- if I can do some further testings that may help you let me know
