[Cu-wireless] Faster 802.11b:

That is probably the 22Mbps TI ACX-100. I read on the Web that it has
poor noise immunity, throughput is not actually much greater than an
11Mbps card (if not less), and there are no open source drivers.

The ACX-100 is an ARM processor with RF add-ons. If we could get hardware
specs, *maybe* we could do interesting things with the chip by customizing
the MAC protocol, etc.

TI has a "bozo filter" a mile deep, but maybe we can penetrate it to
get the hardware docs if we form a open-source wireless driver-writers
consortium. TI is interested in protecting itself from an onslaught of
dumb and/or duplicate questions about their equipment, so if the open
source world had a point person for technical queries, that would be good.
