[Olsr-dev] 802.11s embedded help

Hi all,

I'm trying to get a wireless adapter with 802.11s embedded, so it may still perform backhaul while the main cpu is in suspend mode. The only adapter (preferably USB) that I have come across is the Marvell 88w8388, found in the XO laptop and locked Xbox 360 wireless-g adapter. 

Because there are no new hardware requirements for 802.11s, is it possible to use the XO 802.11s code (or something else?), perhaps recompile it (don't know how), and use it with another wireless adapter? 

Is it possible to use the firmware the guys modifying their WRT54g's with wireless adapters that have their own CPU's?

Thanks for the insight! -Spencer (248) 227-0776
