thanks to Felix from the OpenWRT project the Atheros driver has that feature 
(as you know). Broadcom is a much harder cases because the drivers a binary 
only. We mostly use the famous WRT54G and its derivates for our network. Sven-
Ola managed to write patch for that binary driver of the WRT. There also is an 
open source driver project for the broadcom chips but I'm not sure where it 
stands.
I never experimented with Ralink myself, so I can't answer that. I'm sure 
Elektra could jump in here.  :-)

Regards,
Marek
