Oh awesome, I just found 3 devices that I think might be supported.
Bointec DPE809-AA included Atheros AR9485 and AR3012 is a 802.11bgn 1x1,plus Bluetooth 4.0 solution.
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 AC 7260 7260NGW
Bointec DPE909-AA Atheros AR9462
There are two Atheros chips which according to the guys around here is the best supported by FreeBSD but also there's the intel device.
The main reason why I would personally lean towards the intel is because when I took out the Broadcomm chip from this laptop. This Broadcomm chip had 3 antenna connectors.
and the intel is the only one that I've noticed with the three antenna connectors.
but it seems the device only supports station mode.
How did you find the 7260 being supported? For example I was looking if this device is supported
Atheros AR9462; googling lead me to the auth_hal man page
but when I look in there I don't see any reference to the AR9462 so how can I be sure the device will be supported?
For example ath_hal seems to go up to about 9380 and newer devices aren't supported?
