    Does this meam it's likely that some routers will be supported that aren't currently, if so which ones? Or it means existing ones will have better drivers? Or can someone generally explain what this affects and what it means? Thanks!!

    It's a great beginning ... and there are plenty of clues within as to how the older drivers are constructed too, I would guess. To me it looks a long way from being useable at the moment, but I hope I am wrong about that! It would have been nice if they had released the source for their current drivers and not a half finished one.

    Congratulations to Broadcom for trying, but sadly, it's too little, too late.

    Look inside to most consumer routers, CPU and wireless are branded by Atheros/Ralink now...... No Broadcom anymore like the old time
    It's too late i guess

    Not any that I own, :smile:, a big reason that my last new router was the Asus RT-N16
